Take the following mathematical statement:

1 _ 5 _ 1 _ 5 = 3

Your job is to fill in the blanks in such a way that this statement will be true. The blanks could logically be filled with any symbol associated with math and/or numbers, as long as they make a true statement in the end. Good luck, everyone.
