 P: 64 Heres an exciting number puzzle that i got from a friend of mine: >> make a combination of any of the four basic math operations (+,-,x or /) such that numbers from 1-9 is visible without repeatition. ex. 2x3=6+1=7 note: it is not necessary that the four operations could be used. gudlak!!!
 P: 1,123 9=8+1=7+2=6+3=5+4 That ok?
P: 2,179
 Quote by young e. 2x3=6+1=7
This is not true in standard notation. I expect you mean:

2x3=6 and 6+1=7. If this is so, then the following (in white) would suffice:

8 - 7 = 1 + 2 = 3 + 6 = 9 - 5 = 4

That is, 8 - 7 = 1 and 1 + 2 = 3 and 3 + 6 = 9 and 9 - 5 = 4

There are other solutions as well.
