Scrambled Equations problem

OK.. I downloaded this math game for my phone and it says all problems are solvable but I have 2 that have me stumped.

by using +,-,*,/ and ( )

get the solution 46 using the numbers 1,2,6,9

each number can only be used once and can not be put next to each other to form a different number

the other equation that has me stumped is:

solution 35 using 3,3,7,8

good luck!

Hello, marcnsam!

Here's the second one . . .

By using $\displaystyle +,\,-,\,\times,\,\div,\, (\,)$, get 35 using 3, 3, 7, 8.

$\displaystyle 8(7-3) + 3 \:=\:35$

(9 - 1)*6 - 2 = 46

Thanks Soroban. You gave me the idea. (Sun)
