We need to know which operation $$#$$ signifies

Statement 1: this implies that $$#$$ is multiplication because for any other operation $$\frac{1}{2}#\frac{1}{2}$$ will not be equal to $$\frac{1}{4}$$. Hence Sufficient

Statement 2: here $$#$$ can be multiplication, in that case $$3#2=6$$

or $$#$$ can be subtraction, in that case $$3#2=1$$. Hence no unique value. Insufficient

Option A
The symbol # represents one of addition, substraction, multiplication, &nbs [#permalink] 24 Oct 2017, 07:20
