You can do this for any integer, just by having
$\displaystyle \frac{9}{9}+\frac{9}{9}+...$
Is there no other complication making this a challenge? Otherwise, $\displaystyle 9\times 9+9$ is already $\displaystyle 90$, and it isn't difficult to see how to proceed.
Are we only allowed to perform each operation once?
