Directions: Using the digits ** 2 to 9** at most one time each, place a digit in each box to make two correct equations: one where the value is greater than 30 and one less than 30. You may reuse all the digits each equation.

### Hint

What digits would be better worse to divide by? What are the greatest values you can make on the division side?

### Answer

There are many possible answers including 3 x 6 = 72 ÷ 4 (which equals 18 on both sides) as well as 7 x 6 = 84 ÷ 2 (which equals 42 on both sides).
