Which two signs should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?

**10 ÷ 5 - 4 × 3 + 6 = 13**

By examining all the alternatives we can check for the correct symbols that make the equation true:

$10+5-4 \times 3 \div 6=13$

Solving from the left,

$15-2=13$

$13 = 13$

Select the correct combination of mathematical signs to sequentially replace the *signs and balance the given equation.

17 * 3 * 6 * 2 * 7 * 55

After the signs of option (1), (×, –, ÷, +, = ) is placed in the given equation we get:

17 × 3 - 6 ÷ 2 + 7 = 55

On solving the L.H.S we get:

→ 51 – 3 + 7

→ 51 + 4 → 55

So, L.H.S = R.H.S

As,

By checking the 1st option we have got the correct answer therefore now we don’t need to check other options.

Hence, option (1) is the correct answer.

Which two signs should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?

8 × 4 – 7 + 8 ÷ 2 = 35

8 × 4 – 7 + 8 ÷ 2 = 35

After changing the two signs of option (1), (+ and –) the equation becomes:

8 × 4 + 7 – 8 ÷ 2 = 35

On solving L.H.S;

→ 32 + 7 – 4

→ 39 – 4 → 35

Thus L.H.S = R.H.S

As,

By checking the 1st option we have got the correct answer therefore now we don’t need to check other options.

Hence, option (1) is the correct answer.

From the given alternatives, select the combination of mathematical symbols which, when put sequentially in the place of A, B, C, D and E in the following equation, will balance the equation.

After interchanging the numbers of option (4), (28 and 14)

28 + 32 – 56 ÷ 14 × 5 = 40

On solving L.H.S;

→ 28 + 32 – 56 ÷ 14 × 5

→ 28 + 32 – 4 × 5

Which two signs should be interchanged to make the given equation correct?

8 × 9 ÷ 15 + 30 – 5 = 63

8 × 9 ÷ 15 + 30 – 5 = 63

When the two signs interchanged the equation becomes;

(1). 8 - 9 ÷ 15 + 30 × 5 = 63

On solving L.H.S;
