DAY 322

Today’s Challenge

You have the same starting number and final answer, both 32, with lots of arithmetical steps in between, but the 10th step is missing! What should it be if it involves adding a whole number?

Start with the number 32, then:

5    ÷9    +4    ×3    3    ÷2    ×5    5    ÷2     ?     ×2    +4    ÷3    ×2    =    32

For the real number puzzle enthusiast, there is a 2nd possible (but more tricky) answer which involves multiplying by a decimal number. What is it?
