Correct Answer - Option 2 : ×, +, -, ÷, =

Given,

24 * 12 * 35 * 24 * 6 * 319

By putting option combination of mathematical signs that sequentially replace the * signs from left to right to balance the above equation.

1) +, -, ÷, ×, =

24 + 12 - 35 ÷ 24 × 6 = 319

24 + 12 - 1.45 × 6 = 319

24 + 12 - 8.75 = 319

27.25 ≠ 319

2) ×, +, -, ÷, =

24 × 12 + 35 - 24 ÷ 6 = 319

24 × 12 + 35 - 4 = 319

288 + 35 - 4 = 319

323 - 4 = 319

319 = 319

3) ×, ÷, +, -, =

24 × 12 ÷ 35 + 24 - 6 = 319

24 × 0.34 + 24 - 6 = 319

8.22 + 24 - 6 = 319

32.22 - 6 = 319

26.22 ≠ 319

4) ÷, +, -, ×, =

24 ÷ 12 + 35 - 24 × 6 = 319

2 + 35 - 24 × 6 = 319

2 + 35 - 144 = 319

37 - 144 = 319

- 107 ≠ 319

Therefore the correct combination is ×, +, -, ÷, =

Hence, the correct answer is ×, +, -, ÷, =.
