Well, i thought of
8/004=2

2. suineg | Guest

I think one answer can be this:
3 middle digits on the left: 0I0

So: 80/40=2, the one is now a division sign and the second 0 go to the right of the 4, the other 0 remains in its original position.

8÷4=2

8 DIVIDED BY 4 = 2
‘010’ MUST BE TURNED ON ITS HEAD TO GIVE A DIVISION SIGN! REMINDED ME OF THE HORSE & RIDER PUZZLE…

5. Rupert Parson | Guest

arrange the 0 | and 0 into the “divides” symbol:
0

0

And you get:

8 (divides symbol) 4 = 2

6. Vikram | Guest

08/04=2

7. Evie | Guest

8l004=2 (Using the l as a division sign)

8. jason | Guest

you mean like 8/004=2?

9. think | Guest

I’m not sure how to interpret this puzzle.

Is the | a 1 or a divisor symbol?

If it’s a 1 then by asking us to rearrange the three digits do we leave them on the left side between the 8 and 4 or can we move them anywhere?

If it’s a divisor symbol i guess the answer is 8|004=2.

In 8O|O4, take the O|O. Rotate the line sideways and situate the circles above and below it to form an obelus.

8 ÷ 4 = 2

11. Shawn | Guest

Move the second zero and tilt the 1.

80/40=2

12. Deejam | Guest

80|40 = 2

13. scott k | Guest

just flip them all 90 degrees, make ti a division sign. 8 divided by 4 is 2

14. Ian | Guest

this took me forever. turn the 3 numbers 90 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise to make a division sign.

15. Amie | Guest

8 divided by 4 = 2

16. charity | Guest

8%4=2

17. pushbak | Guest

8 division sign 4 = 2

18. ilSilvano | Guest

I’d say:
8%4=2

19. Shawn | Guest

You could also flip the three middle digits by 90 degrees to make a “divided by” symbol.

010 becomes:

0
——-
0

8 “divided by” 4 = 2

20. Mark W | Guest

Rotate the middle three digits 90 degrees:

8 [division sign] 4 = 2

21. Jay | Guest

Is the 010 supposed to be turned 90 degrees to make it look like a division sign?

22. jayce | Guest

80/40 -> easy

23. Levi | Guest

make the 101 into a divide by sign so you have 8/4=2.

24. xena | Guest

8 / 4 * 1 = 2

25. Rafael | Guest

Just rotate the digits 90 degrees, and you will get an obelius (÷). 8÷4=2

26. Kevin from Bathurst | Guest

8/004

27. Sanjay | Guest

80/40 = 2

28. RK | Profile

couple different ways to get the answer to this lateral thinking problem, as shown above.

29. ana margarita | Guest

8/004 = 2

30. amoxus | Profile

“8/004 = 2” ? I dont like that answer. The question involved ‘rearranging’ the digits. For one thing “/” is not a digit. Another – rearanging a “1” whether moving it or turning does not change what it is. A lying down or slanted “1” is still a “1”. This problem lacks elegans if this is the intended answer.

31. porpoise | Profile

Amoxus, here’s what would seem to be the intended answer, but with the 2 Os instead of these 2 dots helping to form a division line:

8÷4=2

32. shtripa | Profile

Hi, it will be 8 * 1 /4=2

so 2 mising characters are * and /

33. surya | Profile

turn o1o to 90 degrees left or right. it will become a divide symbol. then 8/4 is 2.

34. soumen023 | Profile

8 % 4 = 2
