  1. I don’t find this problem SO worth solving, as the absolute value is not needed (the digits of the subtraction can be arranged in any order to create a positive value).

    It would be much more interesting if the 7 selected digits were asked to be arranged from least to greatest in a sentence like this: ____ + ____ ____ = | ____ ____ – ____ ____ |
