Basic problem

  1. 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!!!

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

    That ok?
     
  4. 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.

  5. Ahh, that makes more sense jimmysnyder.
     
  6. 9+7+4-8-6-5 = 3-2*1
     
  7. THE SOLUTION IS:

    17
    X 4
    _____
    68
    +25
    _____
    93

    AS ILLUSTRATED, ALL NUMBERS FROM 1-9 WAS USED WITHOUT REPEATITION
     
  8. ???
