In a classroom of standard of VIII somebody wrote an equation on a blackboard ; to the left of the equal sign is one symbol, and to the right three symbols. A boy remarked that if the symbol to the left of the equal sign were inverted and one of the three symbols to the right were erased, the equation would still be true and it contains no redundant or unnecessary symbols. What is the equation?
