    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

    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

    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
