Partha, Thanks for posting question on __www.maths-hub.com__

Your Question is : ( )+( )+( )=30....... Fill the boxes using (1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15) number can be repeated.

*Topic : Aptitude*

Method :

- Constraint 1 : Given numbers are (1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15) Only these to be used, though they can be repeated.
- Constraint 2 : Sum shall be = 30
- Constraint 3 : Only 3 Placeholders for operations

Solution: There can be multiple solutions if we just limit to above constraints and be flexible. Few of these are :

- (1+3) + (7+3) + (13+3) = 30 [Using multiple additions]
- (11–1) + (13–3) + (15–5) = 30 [Using multiple subtractions]
- (9-3) + (15-1) + (15-5) = 30 [Using multiple subtractions]
- 11.3 + 15.7 + 3 = 30 [Using decimals]

There can be many more solutions.
