Directions: Use the digits 1 to 9, at most one time each, to make a difference with the least possible value.

### Hint

### Hint

How do you place digits so the difference is less than ten?

### Answer

### Answer

The least possible value is 1.2 and you can get it using:

8.5 – 7.3 = 1.2

6.9 – 5.7 = 1.2

8.5 – 7.3 = 1.2

6.9 – 5.7 = 1.2

Also, 9.5 – 8.3 = 1.2???

4.9 – 3.7

8.4-7.3? Couldn’t you get 1.1?

Disregard, realized 1 is repeated in the answer.

My name is Brigid from 5th grade and I also found 4.7-3.5=1.2

9.7-8.5=1.2

1.2-3.4=2.2

i agree

4.7-3.5=1.2

The least possible value is 1.2 and you can get it using:

8.5 – 7.3 = 1.2

6.9 – 5.7 = 1.2
