# I am trying to figure out how to find the equations that the answer will be 7. How do I do that?

If I have the number 7 and I want to find the equation that comes up with the answer as 7, by using the order of operations, how do you do that?

I'm a little confused about what you're asking, but maybe this will help.

If you need to create an equation, you can just put your answer as 7, and try some different combinations.

For example: 3 + 4 = 7

Or: 3 + 4 - 0 = 7

Or: (3 + 4) / 1 =7 <-- In this one, you are doing parentheses first, so this is an example of order of operations.

Or: ((3 + 4 - 0) x 7) / 7 = 7 (If you have to use many different operations).

Hope this helps!

Yes this helps.  I was a little lost as to how to come about the equation.  Thank you very muc.
