# Math Help - Scrambled Equations problem

1. ## 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

Thanks Soroban. You gave me the idea.
