# Select the correct combination of mathematical signs to replace* in order

In the following expression, select the correct combination of mathematical signs to replace* in order that the resulting expression becomes true:

16*2*24*3*6

(a) + = – /

(b) x – + =

(c) + / = /

(d) – – / =

**Answer: (d) – – / = **

**Solution:-**

Taken option (a),

Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6

Then, 16 + 2 = 24 – 3/6

18 = 24 – 1/2

18 = 47/2

18 does not equal to 47/2, so this option is not correct.

Taken option (b),

Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6.

Then, 16 x 2 – 24 + 3 = 6

32 – 24 + 3 = 6

8 + 3 = 6

11 = 6

11 does not equal to 6. So, this option is not also correct.

Taken option (c),

Put the value of signs in 16*2*24*3*6

Then, 16 + 2/24 = 3/2

16 + 1/12 = 3/2

Both side are equal, so this option is not also correct.

Taken option (d),

16 – 2 – 24/3 = 6

14 – 8 = 6

6 = 6

This option is correct.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d) – – / =.
