5 + 5 + 5 = 550?

Any solution(s) to the above gross mathematical error? By the way, you must ONLY use ONE SINGLE line to solve the problem.

ok, let me solve this.

1. simple way
- put at slash on the equal sign, so now it become

5+5+5 <> 550

2. hard way
- put a slash on the first +, now it become

545+5 = 550

why i know that, cos i'm the genius XD

correct! the slash can also be inserted at the second + sign to make it 5 + 545 = 550...no wonder you are a genius!!!!!!
