I have been creating lots of word games, Time for one of my numbers exercise.

There are 11 numbers listed below; the first and last numbers are in the correct positions in the equation.

The remaining nine numbers are listed at random.

Create an equation with the remaining nine numbers using addition and subtraction only.

The equation starts with the number 3 and ends with the answer 18.

Place the numbers in the right order and with the appropriate arithmetic signs to give you the answer 18.

Remember you can only use addition and subtraction.

Example 1 + 9 =10 + 5 = 15 – 3 = 12 -4 = 8 + 6 = 14

This is a great problem solving exercise.

7. 20. 4. 9. 12. 16. 8. 5. 11.

3 =============================18
