[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Thinking in fractions is the key to success.

Hint Two
    As the first hint suggested, don't try and calculate out hard numbers for this puzzle. Within the parentheses, you will encounter some odd fractions. Keep these in fraction form for the remainder of the problem.

    After all is said and done, as long as your numerator is 10 times larger than your denominator, you've found your answer.

Hint Three
    The eight goes in the rightmost slot.

    Your goal is to arrange the numbers so that everything to the left of the equal sign calculates out to 40/4.
