Select the correct combination of mathematical signs to replace * sign
| Select the correct combination of mathematical signs to replace * signs and to balance the following equation:
96 * 12 * 5 * 7 * 2 * 45
96 * 12 * 5 * 7 * 2 * 45
A. x÷ + = –
B. ÷ x + – =
C. x÷ + – =
D. = + x – ÷
Right Answer is: B
SOLUTION
The original equation is 96 * 12 * 5 * 7 * 2 * 45
Going through each option and replacing * sign with mathematical signs we get,
Option (A):96 x 12 ÷ 5 + 7 – 2 = 45
Applying BODMAS rule we get,
⇒1152 ÷ 5 + 7 – 2 = 45
It is clear from above that this option does not lead to desired solution.
Option (B): 96 ÷ 12 x 5 + 7 – 2 = 45
Applying BODMAS rule we get,
⇒ 8 x 5 + 7 – 2 = 45
⇒ 40 + 7 – 2 = 45
⇒ 45 = 45
LHS = RHS
Hence, B is the correct option.
