    $\begingroup$ “Most creative” runs the risk of being too broad or primarily opinion-based. For that reason I’d argue that it’s not a very good criterion to judge potential answers to a puzzle. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 9 '18 at 12:36

    $\begingroup$ Rohit, I have voted to reopen this new question as written. It appears to be less opinion-based now. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 9 '18 at 19:06
  • $\begingroup$ After the edit, there's no longer an $x$, and the two existing answers now have no relation to the question. $\endgroup$ – shoover Sep 10 '18 at 5:26
  • $\begingroup$ @El-Guest me too :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 10 '18 at 9:20

This is just

$x = 250 \times 45 = 11250.$ where you can put the decimal point at the end of a number I believe.

    $\begingroup$ @RohitJose That is what I originally stated in this puzzle of mine, but risked being closed as too broad :\ $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Sep 9 '18 at 12:33
  • $\begingroup$ Well, I guess I'll risk it as well! $\endgroup$ – Rohit Jose Sep 9 '18 at 12:48
  • $\begingroup$ @El-Guest I have changed the question. Please edit or delete your answer $\endgroup$ – Rohit Jose Sep 10 '18 at 6:27
