Here is a unique 7-part question.  Firstly, answer all seven parts:

  1. (4 + 3) + (2 - 1) = ?
  2. (4 × 3) ÷ (1 × 1) = ?
  3. (4 – 3) × (2 ÷ 1) = ?
  4. (3 + 3) ÷ (2 × 1) = ?
  5. (3 ÷ 3) – (1 + 1) = ?
  6. (3 – 3) × (1 ÷ 1) = ?
  7. (3 × 3) – (2 + 1) = ?

then find the sum of all seven answers.  What is your overall answer?
