Target Practice Plus #10

Challenge 1. 33 = (150 / 5) + (19 – 13) / 2; 33 = (150 + 13 + 2) / 5

and 33 = (100 / 5) + 13

Challenge 2. 196 = (11 + 3) x (25 – 7 – 4); 196 = 25 x (19 – 11) – 4

and 196 = (3 + 25) x 7

Challenge 3. 6 = 75 – 37 – 18 – (2 x 7); 6 = 2 x (75 / (7 + 18))

and using all six, 6 = (75 + 37 + 18 + 7 – 125) / 2
