For the given string 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1, without changing the order of the numbers in the string, structure it into an equation such that the result equals to 100.

You can use any number or types of operators. Also what is the least number of operators required to achieve this task? ### Solution

We can solve this puzzle simply by trying in various combinations of operators with the numbers. Some of the combinations that we can are given below:-

`98 - 76 + 54 + 3 + 21 = 1009 - 8 + 76 + 54 - 32 + 1 = 10098 + 7 - 6 + 5 - 4 + 3 - 2 - 1 = 10098 + 7 - 6 + 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 + 1 = 10098 - 7 + 6 + 5 - 4 + 3 - 2 + 1 = 10098 - 7 + 6 - 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 - 1 = 10098 + 7 - 6 - 5 + 4 + 3 - 2 + 1 = 10098 - 7 - 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 100`
`9 + 8 + 76 + 5 + 4 - 3 + 2 - 1 = 1009 + 8 + 76 + 5 - 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 10098 + 7 + 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 - 1 = 10098 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 + 3 + 21 = 1009 - 8 + 76 - 5 + 4 + 3 + 21 = 10098 - 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 = 1009 - 8 + 7 + 65 - 4 + 32 - 1 = 100`

Also the combination which requires the least number of operators is

`98 - 76 + 54 + 3 + 21 = 100` • Bag of Forgery Coins Puzzle
