Right you are ... use the 6 and the 7, and make a 9 from $50/5 +1 -2$

5. that's cute

6. sorry i mean 6 hundred and seventy nine from 50, 6, 7, 2, 1,3

7. here you go

(2*50*7)-((6+1)*3)

8. I have done it!!!!!!!!

i mean 50, 6, 7, 2, 1, 5. the answer is
50-1=49 49x2=98 6-5=1
98-1=97 97x7=679

9. You keep changing the problem

you are ridiculous.
