EXAMPLE 1. If ‘+’ stands for division, ‘x’ stands for    addition, ‘-’ stands for multiplication, and ‘÷’        stands for subtraction, then which of the           following equation is correct?

            (a) 36 × 6 + 7 ÷ 2 – 6 = 20

            (b) 36 + 6 – 3 × 5 ÷ 3 = 24

            (c) 36 + 6 + 3 × 5 – 3 = 45

            (d) 36 – 6 + 3 × 5 ÷ 3 = 74

Sol.      (d) 36 × 6 ÷ 3 + 5 – 3

            36 × 2 + 5 – 3 = 74

EXAMPLE 2. If P denotes ‘+’, Q denotes ‘-‘ R denotes ‘ב and S denotes ‘÷’ then, which of    the following statement is correct?

            (a) 16 R 12 P 49 S 7 Q9 = 200

            (b) 32S8R9 = 160Q 12R 12

            (c) 8R8P8S8Q = 57

            (d) 36R4S8Q7P4 = 10

Sol.      (c) 8R8P8S8Q

            = 8×8+88-8

            = 8 × 8 +  -8

            = 64 +1- 8 = 57

EXAMPLE 3. Select correct combination of      mathematical sign to replace ‘*’ sign to  balance the equation.

            9* 4* 22 *14

            (a) x = –            (b) × – =

            (c) = – ×            (d) – × =

Sol.      (b)        9* 4* 22 *14

            9 × 4 – 22 = 14

EXAMPLE 4. Given interchange: sign ‘+’ and ‘-’ and    numbers 5 and 8. Which of the following is correct?

(a) 82-35 + 55=2           (b) 82-35 + 55 = 102

(c) 85-38 + 85 = 132      (d) 52-35+55 = 72

Sol.      (a)        52 + 38-88=2
