    Missing symbols...

    Replace the "___" with mathematical symbols to produce the correct answer. Only the four basic operators ( +, -, x,and / ) are permitted. Calculations must be performed in a strict left to right order. Do not add any ( ). The puzzle has not beed checked for multiple solutions but I do have one solution that I've confirmed... There is a strict ten minute time limit on this quiz. Any solutions not submitted on-time will disqualified.

    5 ___ 1/2 ___ 1/4 ___6___ 24 ___ 2.50 ___ 16 ___ 1/4 ___ 21 = 1
