Explanation:-

8 x 1 + 5 x 3 = 8 + 15
= 23,

8 x 3 + 3 x 1 = 24 + 3
= 27,

4 x 3 + 2 x 6 = 12 + 12
= 24,

1. (a) 26

Explanation:-
2 x 4 + 3 x 6 = 8 + 18 ,

Hence, the correct answer is option (a) 26.

2. (b) 4

Explanation:-

4 x 1 + 5 x ? = 24
4 + 5 x ? = 24
5 x ? = 24 – 4
? = 20/5
? = 4

Hence, the correct answer is option  (b) 4.

3. (c) 1/2

Explanation:-
12 x 1/2 + ? x 12 = 12
6 + ? x 12 = 12
? x 12 = 12 – 6
? x 12 = 6
? = 6/12
? = 1/2

Hence, the correct answer is option (c) 1/2.
