FUN for Figurenuts

	Each of the ten sets of equations below have nine blanks to be
filled in.  BUT, you must fill them in by using only the numbers 1 to 9
once and only once in each set.

	Here is an example for Set 1:

	(5 - 3)  2 = 1      6 + 4 - 9 = 1      (8 - 7)  1 = 1

	Now find another way for Set 1.  Then do the other sets in a
similar manner.

HAVE FUN!!!

Set 1: (_ - _) _ = 1 Set 2: (_ + _) _ = 2 _ + _ - _ = 1 _ + _ - _ = 2 (_ - _) _ = 1 _ _ - _ = 2 Set 3: (_ - _) _ = 3 Set 4: (_ + _) _ = 4 (_ + _) _ = 3 _ x _ _ = 4 _ - _ - _ = 3 _ + _ - _ = 4 Set 5: _ _ + _ = 5 Set 6: _ _ _ = 6 _ _ - _ = 5 _ + _ - _ = 6 _ + _ - _ = 5 _ - _ - _ = 6 Set 7: _ _ + _ = 7 Set 8: _ _ + _ = 8 _ + _ - _ = 7 _ _ + _ = 8 _ _ + _ = 7 _ + _ - _ = 8 Set 9: _ _ + _ = 9 Set 10: _ _ + _ = 10 _ _ + _ = 9 _ + _ - _ = 10 _ _ - _ = 9 _ + _ - _ = 10
