**Today’s Challenge**

Three UNIQUE digits must be used to arrive at a specified target number.

Players must multiply two numbers together, then either add or subtract the third number to achieve your target answer of 25. The formula is (a×b)±c, where a, b and c are three unique digits from 1-9.

One way of achieving 25 is (8×2)+9, can you find the other EIGHT ways?

[Note: (8×2)+9 = 25 and (2×8)+9 = 25 counts as just ONE way.]
