In today’s post, we are going to practice some Smartick logic exercises that parents ask us about fairly often: Operator exercises.
They are exercises that, at first glance, look complicated but once you understand them you see that they can become a game for children!
They form part of the logic exercises that stimulate mathematical talent intent on presenting the introduction to mathematics functions as a challenge.
We will see how to solve various examples.
Are you ready? Let’s go!
Example of operators in addition
To begin, let’s solve the following exercise:
Here the symbol ? functions as an operator that relates M and D in a specific way.
If we look closely at the operation related to M and D, we see that in this case it is addition. So, in order to operate M and D, we need to add them.
Therefore, to operate 4 and 2, we need to add them as well: 4 + 2 = 6.
Do you see how simple it is?!
Example of operators in subtraction
Now we will solve the next exercise:
Now we have the symbol ? that functions as an operator to relate E and C as a subtraction problem.
And in order to operate 8 and 4, we have to subtract 4 from 8, in other words, 8 – 4 = 4.
I’m sure that you also found this one easy, right?
Example of operators in subtraction and changing the order
And, lastly, we will solve the following exercise:
Now we have this symbol ? which functions as an operator to relate T and F in a subtraction problem but changing the order of the letters. So, in order to operate T and F, we have to subtract T from F.
And to operate 8 and 9, we have to subtract 8 from 9 like this: 9 – 8 = 1.
This exercise is a bit more complicated since you have to change the order of the letters but still simple, don’t you think?
I hope that these examples have helped you to understand operator exercises. Don’t forget to share this post if you liked it!
