Number 7 could also equal 40: do the addition then add the results of the previous equation. 8+11 = 19, then add 21 (answer from previous equation) = 40

James Williams, the order has no bearing on the answer. It will always be zero.

Being totally thick and useless at maths I didn't get any and to be honest I didn't even understand some of them or the answers given. Bottom of the class!!

#5 is not a question!! #9 also 2+5=3+4 .. it doesn't say you have to use each symbol only once!!

Question 5 doesn't ask a question, question 7 doesn't have enough information to get to your solution, since I could also add on from the previous equation to get my answer of 40. Question 9 doesn't say you only use the symbols once, to 2+5=3+4.

#10 depends on in which order you multiply them., If you start with 1 and go in ascending order it =0 if you start with 0 and go in descending order it = 40,320

#1 is completely wrong! 1+1=2, 1x1=1... 2+2=4, 2x2=4... 3+3=6, 3x3=9
