    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
