Calculators are great (calculator watches are even better), but we too often use them as a crutch. So today, carefully put down the calculator, slowly step away, and dust off your arithmetic skills. We think this week's Teaser is actually easier to solve without a calculator, despite how it might look at first. Your 5th grade teacher would be so proud of you!
Simple question: How many 1s are in the smallest multiple of 17 that is made up entirely of 1s?
Put another way: there is a whole number x that is made up entirely of 1s. It is the smallest multiple of 17 that is made up entirely of 1s. How many digits does x have?

What are the only things math geeks like more than numbers? Mathematical symbols.

Today, though, you have to solve the teaser with some mathematical handcuffs. Using all of the digits and symbols below exactly once each and no other symbols or digits, can you construct a valid equation? (For instance, if you had 1 2 3 4 + + =, you could make 1+4=2+3.)1 2 3 4 9 ✕ ✕ =
