    I don't see 9 on the poll, so I can't vote.

    Okay, how do you get 9 out of that?

    I get 7+1+7-7
    7+1 is 8, 8+7 is 15, 15-7 is 8

    ETA: never mind - board history brain fart. I forgot that 9 is the answer to all math problems~!

    I got 2

    7+7=14

    7+7-7= 7

    14/7 = 2

    I should be embarrassed by this, I know

    i see

    you are supposed to do the 7/7 first =1

    then it is 7+1+7-7 for 8

    Math is so stupid. Why do I have to know this. Just ask me what the eff 7+1 is!! :gah
