How do you place the inclusion symbols to make the statement 27+5*8-6=37 true?

With these types of problems you really have to play around with the expression and try out spots for the parenthesis.

If we have the expression

#27+5*(8-6)#, this will evaluate to #37#, because we will just have #27+10#.

Hope this helps!
