1996 Puzzle - Solution

The Puzzle:

1996
Use the numerals 1, 9, 9 and 6 exactly in that order to make the following numbers: 28, 32, 35, 38, 72, 73, 76, 77, 100 and 1000

You can use the mathematical symbols +, -, ×, /, √, ^ (exponent symbol) and brackets.

Example: 63 = 1×9+9×6




Our Solution:

28 = 1+9+√(9)×6
32 = (1/√(9))×96
35 = -19+(9x6)
38 = 19/(√(9)/6)
72 = (1+√(9))×√(9)×6
73 = 19+(9×6)
76 = 1+(9×9)-6
77 = -19+96
100 = 1+√(9)+96
1000 = (1+9)^(9-6)
