Hi Rudi,

A number is not a missing operator.

I think it must be some new operator, that is rarely used.  One I have not heard of.

Here is another possibility but still more than one operator has been introduced.

$$\lfloor 3*4\div 5 \rfloor=2$$

Hi Melody,

the questioner should have asked for "alphanumeric characters".

I googled it, and apparently, there's an operator called used in coding that would work. It's called operator $$\text{%}$$, and it finds the remainder when division is performed.

It would work here, because $$3 \times 4 = 12$$, and the remainder when 12 is divided by 5 is 2.

Thus, the missing operator is $$\color{brown}\boxed{\text{%}}$$
