    Think-of-a-number problem: confused - help needed

    Think of a number
    +4, x3, -9, x2, /6, -original number = 1

    I want to make up a similar problem that will always give 5, but have no idea how to do it.

    Any help appreciated.

    You could add 4 after dividing by 6 or in the end.
