### Answer

There are many solutions that sum to 9 4.87+2.63+1.5=9, 2.83 + 4.57 + 1.6 = 9.

1.41+1.09+1.5=4

You can only use each digit once though, Alejandro.

1,5+2,7+3,8=8

4.25+3.15+1.6=9

i agree

Me too! good answer, sofia.

me too as in i agree too

All the solutions have (1,2,4) in the ones place, (5,6,8) in the tenths place, (3,7) in the hundredths place, and 9 as the whole number sum. For example, 1.53 + 2.67 + 4.8 = 9. There are 36 solutions, I think, and they all fit this pattern. Starting from the fact that the whole number must be 9, then the ones place digits must sum to 7, the tenths place digits must sum to 19, and the hundredths place digits must sum to 10. There’s only one way to get those sums.

Fun problem! I approached it the same way as I did https://www.openmiddle.com/close-to-1000/
