**Problem:**

Add arithmetic operators (plus, minus, times, divide) to make the following expression true: 3 1 3 6 = 8. You can use any parentheses you’d like.

### Solution:

**Method 1 - Hit and try**

This is what I can think of :

- we can first see 3+1+3+6 =13 No
- Multiplying is not solution either
- (3+1+3)/6 No
- 48/6 = 8 but 48 cannot be made by 3 1 3.
- 24/3 = 6*4 / 3 = 6 * (3 + 1) /3 ...hence we solved it.
