Directions: Using the digits 0 through 9, at most one time each, place a digit in each box to create the greatest possible value.

### Hint

How do the order of operations tell you what you should do first? What possible values can you make on the left/right side of the equals sign? Which side would it be better to start with?

### Answer

The greatest possible value for both sides of the equal sign is 76 which comes from a few possibilities including 76 ÷ (3 – 2) = 4 + 9 x 8.

Wrong me and my friend broke the answer key answer 78 see below

78÷(1-0)= 4+9x 6

Check the right side of your equation. It doesn’t equal 78 since you have to multiply before you add in Order of Operations procedure.

Add a couple of brackets, and you’d be there. 🙂

72÷(4-1)=9+3×5

Each side equals 24.

I don’t think your website works very well.

I agree.

I definitely agree with you. Your comment is amazing.

Thank you!

Just telling the truth!

Just telling facts

I finally saw a YouTube video on how to find it. Sorry.

You all need to respect the website and not use it as a game but a tool.

Sorry old timer!

We were able to get 96! 96 / (1-0) = 8+4×3
