Challenge 1. 5 = (101 – 37 – 14) / (8 + 2); 5 = (72 – 37) / (14 / 2)

Using 3 of the set: 5 = (72 – 2) / 14; 5 = 14 – 72 / 8; 5 = 2 + 101/37

Challenge 2. 147 = (2 + 5) x 22 + 6 – 13; 147 = (22 + 5) x 6 – 13 – 2.

Can you find other solutions using 4 or 5 of the set?

Using all six: 147 = 100 + (22 – 13) x 6 – 5 – 2.

Challenge 3. 120 = 250 – 5 x (19 + 7); 120 = (31 – 7) x 5
