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!

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.
