I combined the numbers to make another number and only used the number I made once. I dont know if combining counts as "using" the number or if it means you can only use it once in the addition?

I'm probably wrong but its just a thought.

That makes sense. If it said you can only use each digit once, then it would be more clear, but as it is written, it seems as if it could be interpreted your way.

If were looked at it from a trick question standpoint, it says to use 1-6 and only use them once but it doesn't specifically say your only limited to those numbers. So hypothetically, I guess you could use 7? I may be looking too much into this, I don't know.

i think this is the key.

it says you have to use 1,2, 3, 4, 5, 6 once each but it doesn't say ONLY use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. it actually puts no limit on how many times you can use the digits 0, 7, 8, 9 so i would assume there could be many answers.
