State whether the statements are True or False.

[(–32) ÷ 8 ] ÷ 2 = –32 ÷ [ 8 ÷ 2]

Answer :

We will be basically following BODMAS

Take left hand side (LHS) of this equation.


That is, LHS = [(-32) ÷ 8] ÷ 2


LHS = [-(32 ÷ 8)] ÷ 2 [ minus sign can be taken outside the brackets]


[The following steps are general division]


LHS = -4 ÷ 2


LHS = -2 …(i)


Now, take right hand side (RHS) of this equation.


That is, RHS = -32 ÷ [8 ÷ 2]



RHS = -32 ÷ 4


RHS = -8 …(ii)


Comparing equations (i) & (ii), we can say


LHS ≠ RHS


[ LHS = -2 & RHS = -8]


Thus, this is a false statement.
