    Please help, (daughters home work problem)

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    I believe I solved this problem but my daughter thinks otherwise.

    The question states "make this problem true"

    2+7^2-3^2/3^2-1*5=35

    the ^ is 2nd power, I hope that is the right symbol

    I came up with

    (2+7)^-3^/3^-1*5=35


    (2+7)^ = 81, - 3^ = 72,/ 3^= 8, -1 = 7 * 5 = 35....?

    looks crude but it looks right? Thanks for any and all help.

    Hello, mnmailman!

    I think you've got it . . .


    \text{Make this problem true: }\:2+7^2-3^2 \div 3^2-1 \times 5 \:=\:35

    \bigg[\dfrac{(2+7)^2 - 3^2}{3^2} - 1\bigg]\cdot 5 \;=\;35
