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

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

    (9 - 1)*6 - 2 = 46
