Question of The Day17-09-2020

# Which of the following digits and symbols has to be interchanged to make the given equation correct?

27 ÷ 3 – 11 + 34 × 9 = (12)2

Correct Answer : c ) 7 and 2, × and -

Explanation :

Considering the given equation:

27 ÷ 3 – 11 + 34 × 9 = (12)2

Considering option (a): Interchanging the signs in the equation according to the option we get,

72 – 3 ÷ 11 + 34 × 9 = (17)2

Taking LHS

72 – 3 ÷ 11 + 34 × 9

In the above equation according to BODMAS we will first do division. As we can see there 3 ÷ 11 will result into fraction and on the RHS side there is an integer.

Thus, we can eliminate this option.

Now, considering option (b): Interchanging the signs in the equation according to the option we get,

27 ÷ 9 + 11 – 94 × 3 = (12)2

Taking LHS

27 ÷ 9 + 11 – 94 × 3

Using BODMAS rule

⇒ 3 + 11 – 94 × 3

⇒ 3 + 11 – 282

⇒ - 249 ≠ (12)2

Considering option (c): Interchanging the signs in the equation according to the option we get,

72 ÷ 3 × 11 + 34 – 9 = (17)2

Taking LHS

72 ÷ 3 × 11 + 34 – 9

Using BODMAS rule

⇒ 24 × 11 + 34 – 9

⇒ 264 + 34 – 9 = 289 = (17)2

Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
