Directions: Using the digits 1 to 6, at most one time each, fill in the boxes so that top two equations are equal and the bottom equation has the greatest value.

### Hint

### Hint

If you want the first two answers to be the same, should they both be positive or negative?

What pairs of numbers from 1-6 can you combine to make the same outcome?

How could we rewrite the second problem?

How could we rewrite the third problem?

### Answer

### Answer

First possible solution:

-6 + 3 = -3

-2 – 1 = -3 (2 and 1 in any order)

-4 – -5= 1 (or -5 – -4 = -1)

-6 + 3 = -3

-2 – 1 = -3 (2 and 1 in any order)

-4 – -5= 1 (or -5 – -4 = -1)

Second possible solution:

-6 + 1 = -5

-2 – 3 = -5 (2 and 3 in any order)

-4 – -5 = 1 (or -5 – -4 = -1)

Third possible solution:

-6 + 2 = -4

-1 – 3 = -4 (1 and 3 in any order)

-4 – -5 = 1 (or -5 – -4 = -1)

Another one:

-6+2=-1-3=-4

and -4<-4-(-5)

Great spot Dominique – I have added your suggestion to the list of solutions.

-6 + 5 = -1

-4 – (make it addition) 3 = -1

-2 – (make it addition) -1 (make positive) = -1

would also work

-1 wouldn’t be the greatest possible value, would it?
