# make this sum using only +

A bit of a speed question this, first correct answer gets the check. Although you are allowed to use computers, it might be quicker not to. By placing only $+$ signs between some of the numbers on the left hand side, make this expression true:

$1\;\;2\;\;3\;\;4\;\;5\;\;6\;\;7\;\;8\;\;9 = 855$

For example if we had $1\;\;2\;\;3\;\;4 = 19$, the answer is $12+3+4=19$

It is

$1 + 2 +3 + 54 + 6 + 789 = 855$

Edit

Nevermind, it is

$12 + 3 + 45 + 6 + 789 = 855$

and it could also be

$123 + 45 + 678 + 9 = 855$

• no because you've got 54 not 45 – JMP Sep 11 '18 at 8:22
• @JonMarkPerry oh nevermind, thought I could do that :D – Ian Fako Sep 11 '18 at 8:23

• correct but not the one I've got – JMP Sep 11 '18 at 8:27
• @JonMarkPerry another solution added :D – Ian Fako Sep 11 '18 at 8:29

It can be-

$1+2+3+4+56+789=855$

• it seems there can be multiple acceptable solution within given constraints. – Shahriar Mahmud Sajid Sep 11 '18 at 8:31
• That's what I got too :) – AHKieran Sep 11 '18 at 10:37
