27 February 2014: MAKE 1,000

This is our 1,000th, and final, number puzzle at 7puzzleblog.com for a while. Keep watching, as next month will see more number puzzles appearing in a different format. In the meantime, use your arithmetical skills in my popular MAKE number puzzle challenge.

Insert + – x or ÷ when you see ? so the result is exactly 1,000 when working one step at a time from Left to Right (and no brackets allowed):

1  ?  2  ?  3  ?  4  ?  5  ?  6  ?  7  ?  8  ?  9  ?  10  =  1,000
