My name is James. I am a student in the 10th grade so I guess my question is secondary ... Okay here goes nothing Complete the Equation Try to replace the blanks below with + or  to make the statement correct 1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9 = 1 My problem has to be simple but dang if I can get it... I already tried everything I could think of and my head hurts now... I have tried starting with negative numbers. I have tried so many different ways... I know the answer has to be so easy. Like its sitting right in my face but I can't seem to get it... Please it is no longer homework but the teacher didn't give the answer either and it is driving me NUTS now... Thank you so much for the help James
