**Q1. If ‘-‘ stands for ‘division’, ‘+’ for ‘multiplication’, ‘÷’ for ‘subtraction’ and ‘×’ for ‘addition’, then which one of the following equations is correct?**

(a) 4 × 5 + 9 – 3 ÷ 4 = 15

(b) 4 × 5 × 9 + 3 ÷ 4 = 11

(c) 4 – 5 ÷ 9 x 3 – 4 = 17

(d) 4 ÷ 5 + 9 – 3 ÷ 4 = 18

**Ans.(a)**

**Sol. 4 + 5 x 9 ÷ 3 – 4 = 15**

**Q2. If ‘+’ shows ‘÷’ ‘-’ shows ‘=’, ‘×’ shows ‘+’, ‘÷’ shows ‘>’, ‘=’ shows ‘<’, ‘>’ shows ‘x’ and ‘<’ shows ‘-’ then the correct expression is-**

(a) 5 + 2 × 1 = 3 + 14 > 11

(b) 5 > 2 × 1 – 3 > 4 < 1

(c) 5 × 2 < 1 – 3 < 4 × 11

(d) 5 < 2 × 1 ÷ 3 > 4 × 11

**Ans.(b)**

**Sol. After changing signs according to the question, the new equations will be:**

**Here,**

**(1) 5 ÷ 2 + 1 < 3 ÷ 14 × 11**

**Or 3.5 <2 5/14 (Incorrect)**

**(2) 5 × 2 + 1 = 3 × 4 – 1 (Correct)**

**(3) 5 + 2 – 1 = 3 – 4 + 11**

**or, 9 = 10 (Incorrect)**

**(4) 5 – 2 + 1 > 3 × 4 + 11**

**or, 4 > 23**

**from option (2)**

**5 × 2 + 1 = 3 × 4 – 1**

**= 11 = 11 (True)**

(b) 41

(c) 29

(d) 19

**Ans.(a)**

**Sol.**
