# How to make 1000 with 9 nines?

Can you reach the number 1000 by using the number nine nine times?

It is possible to reach the number 1000 by using 9x 9’s. In fact, this is a result that can be achieved with just a few simple steps. Below you can see two transactions where we reached 1000 using 9x 9:

999 + (999/999) = 1000

Here we add the number 999 with 1, which is obtained by dividing 999 by 999, and the result is 1000. As you can see, only 9’s are used in the transaction and the transaction is completed with 9 9’s.

(9/9 x 9/9 x 9/9) + 999 = 1000

Here, we divide the number 999 by 9 three times and multiply them together and add them to 1, and the result is 1000. In this process, only 9’s are used and the result is obtained with 9 9’s.

A similar process:

(99/99 x 9/9) + 999 = 1000
