The one digit odd numbers 1,3,5,7,9 add up to 25, while the one digit even numbers add up to 0,2,4,6,8 add up to 20.

Can you arrange the numbers in such a way that the odd numbers and the even numbers have the same value? You can use +, -, / and *. You can also combine digits to make multi-digit numbers.

1. 79 + 5 + 1/3 = 84 + 2/6 + 0

2. Very clever, amigo.

3. Thanks.

Something is really slowing down the site today. I wonder what's going on?

4. It can be simpler...

0-2+4+6+8 = 1+3+5-7+9 = 18

5. Am I missing something?
0 - 2 + 4 + 6 + 8 = 16
1 + 3 + 5 - 7 + 9 = 11

6. 6+0+24/8=9-7-1+5+3
