Question 4

Which two signs need to be interchanged to make the following equation correct?
$$48 - 8 \div 4 + 5 \times 6 = 32$$

Solution

Given expression  $$48 - 8 \div 4 + 5 \times 6 = 32$$

check option (A) $$\times and + $$

we put the sign from the given expression 

$$48 - 8 \div 4 \times 5 +6 = 32$$

LHS $$48 - 8 \div 4 \times 5 +6$$

$$\Rightarrow 48-2\times 5 +6 $$

$$\Rightarrow 48 - 10 +6 $$

$$\Rightarrow 44 $$ its not staisfied RHS 

then we check option (B) $$\div and - $$

we put sign from the given option

$$48 \div 8 -4 + 5 \times 6 = 32 $$

LHS $$48 \div 8-4 +5 \times 6$$

$$\Rightarrow 6-4 + 30 $$

$$\Rightarrow 32 $$ RHS it is verified RHS 

therefore option (B)$$ \div and - $$ Ans
