Target Practice Plus #3

Challenge 1. 3 = (50 + 7)/(20 – 1) and others. Using three numbers 3 = (20 + 1)/7 and there is one more solution using three of the set.

Challenge 2. 13 = (100 – 25 + 3)/6, and others using four members. Using three members

13 = (45 – 6)/3. Are there any other 3 number solutions?

Challenge 3. 144 = 99 + 37 + 17 – 7 – 2, and there are other five-number solutions; 144 = 2 x 99 –37 – 17. Are there other four-numbeer solutions? 144 = (99 – 27) x 2 is the most concise solution I've found. Are there others?
