Sol. According to the question Therefore, S6. Ans.(c)
Sol. The given expression is 15 – 3 + 10 × 5 ÷ 5
Using the symbols correctly as given in the above question, the above expression becomes
15 × 3 – 10 ÷ 5 + 5
Using BODMAS RULE, we get

Sol. The given expression is 12 M 12 D 28 P 7 T 15
Using the symbols correctly as given in the above question, the above expression becomes
12 – 12 × 28 ÷ 7 + 15
Using BODMAS RULE, we get
12 – 12 × 4 + 15 = 12 – 48 + 15 = 27 – 48 = –21
Therefore, the value of the given expression = –21
