DAY 366:

The Main Challenge

You are playing Roll3Dice and have just rolled 2, 5 and 6 with your three dice.

Using these three numbers once each, with + – × ÷ available, it is possible to make SEVEN target numbers in the range 1-10, as indicated below.

Can you place 2, 5 and 6 into the gaps on each line so that all seven calculations work out?

  •   ◯+◯–◯  =  1
  •   ◯–◯÷◯  =  2
  •   ◯+◯–◯  =  3
  •   ◯×◯–◯  =  4
  •   ◯×◯–◯  =  7
  •   ◯+◯÷◯  =  8
  •   ◯+◯–◯  =  9
