# If ‘-‘ Stands for Addition, ‘+’ for Multiplication, ‘÷’ for Subtraction and ‘x’ for Division :

If ‘-‘ stands for addition, ‘+’ for multiplication, ‘÷’ for subtraction and ‘x’ for division, which one of the following equations is correct?

- 5 ÷ 2+12×6-2=4
- 5+2-12 ÷ 6×2=13
- 5-2+12×6÷2=27
- 5+2-12×6÷2=10

**Answer: (4) 5 + 2 – 12 x 6 /2 = 10**

**Explanation:-**If ‘-‘ stands for addition, ‘+’ for multiplication, ‘/’ for subtraction and ‘x’ for division.

**Taken option (1)**,

Put the value of signs in the option (1),

Then, 5 – 2 x 12 /6 + 2 = 4

5 – 2 x 2 + 2

5 – 4 + 2

1 + 2 = 3

3 does not equal to 4.

Then, this option is not correct.

**Taken option (2)**,

Put the value of signs in the option (2),

Then, 5 x 2 + 12 – 6/2 = 13

10 + 12 – 3

22 – 3

= 19

19 is does not equal to 13,

This option is not correct.

**Taken option (3),**Put the value of signs in the option,

Then, 5 + 2 x 12 /6 – 2 = 27

5 + 2 x 2 – 2

5 + 4 – 2

9 – 2

= 7

7 does not equal to 27.

This option is also incorrect.

**Taken option (4),**Put the value of signs in the option,

Then, 5 x 2 + 12/6- 2 = 10

10 + 2 – 2

10 = 10

Then, the option is correct.

Hence, the answer is (4) 5 + 2 – 12 x 6 /2 = 10
