# How to improve Maths / Aptitude Calculation Speed

Calculation Speed plays a very very very important role in Bank Exams. Some people think that, people should have the natural ability to do calculations fast, of course that is true at some extent. But that doesn't mean the other ordinary people like you and me need not feel bad.
According to Aerodynamics Laws based on Weight and the Size of the wings, some species only do have the ability to fly. If we strictly apply their laws, a Bee cant fly. Because its weight is More and Wing's length is very less when compared to its Weight. But still it is flying very comfortably and enjoying the Honey in almost every flower.
Sometimes Old rules and blind beliefs remain worthless. Forecasters' predictions become wrong. Only The Belief in You and Hard work will create wonders. Trust me, it is very easy to develop good calculation speed in a relatively short period of
time. All you need is Hardwork, Little Amount of time and Good Material to Prepare... You give us the first TWO, we will provide you with the Third one...

30 x 30 : Just spend 30 minutes a day for 30 days. You will definitely find the difference in your calculation speed. Your practice involves basic Additions, Subtractions, Multiplications, Percentage Calculations, Comparing Fractions and Calculating Squares.

How can this blog help me? We post some examples on calculations. Solutions for these
examples indicating the short-cuts that you need to learn and implement. Which will help you to solve problems mentally in less time .

• Take One test every day.
• Check the starting time and keep in mind the time that has been allotted for the particular exercise.
• Don't use calculator.
• Write as little as possible on paper. You should try doing as much of the calculation as possible mentally.
• Some questions require precise calculations whereas some other questions require only approximate calculations. Please remember that the level of accuracy to which you should work out the calculations will depend on the answer choices given in the post itself. So, do not spend more time than is necessary on each question.
• Stop the test as soon as the Prescribed time is Over.
• After you Complete each exercise, spend time working out the questions that you could not complete in the given time. Then, check for the correctness of your answers. Rework all the questions in the test to see whether the method that you adopted was the best/shortest.

47. i have one question: the air consist of 79.2% of nitrogen, 20.7% off oxygen, 0.08%of other light gases and the remaining gas is argon. find out the volume of the air consisting one cubic meter of argon. plz answer to this. i can't understand the problem.

48. Percentage of Argon present in air = 100 – (79.2 + 20.7 + 0.08)
= 100 – 99.98 = 0.02%
That is 100 cu m of air contains 0.02 cu m of Argon
Hence 1 cu m of air contains 0.0002 cu m of Argon
