If * stands for -, /stands for +, +stands for *, then which of the following is TRUE?
this is a stupid problem. Why confuse the issue by scrambling the operators? Now, if we were assigning the operators to some new method, such as
let / stand for "square first operand and add the second"
so that 3/4 = 9+4 = 13
then there might be a point to it. Just mixing up the symbols achieves no purpose.
I totally agree with Steve and thought the same when I posted this reply in 2011
