Alexandr Proshin Asks:

I tried to make puzzles like this in LaTex and had some problems, especially with examples for division .

*“Numeric Puzzles” in Latex. Vertical division etc. with letters and other symbols*I tried to make puzzles like this in LaTex and had some problems, especially with examples for division .

With help of begin{tabular} i make this for addition and multiplication:

Code:

```
documentclass[a4paper,12pt]{article}
usepackage{cmap}
usepackage{mathtext}
usepackage[T2A]{fontenc}
usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
usepackage[english,russian]{babel}
usepackage{color,xlop}
usepackage{amsmath,amsfonts,amssymb,amsthm,mathtools}
usepackage{icomma}
mathtoolsset{showonlyrefs=true}
usepackage{euscript}
usepackage{mathrsfs}
newcommand*{hm}[1]{#1nobreakdiscretionary{}
{hbox{$mathsurround=0pt #1$}}{}}
begin{document}
1.
begin{tabular}{c@{,}c@{,}c@{,}c}
& star & 6 & star \
+ & & star & 7 \
hline
star & star & 2 & 4 \
end{tabular}
enspaceenspace
2.
begin{tabular}{c@{,}c@{,}c@{,}c@{,}c}
& star & star & 0 & 3 \
-& & star & 8 & star \
hline
& & star & 2 & 4 \
end{tabular}
enspaceenspace
3.
begin{tabular}{c@{,}c@{,}c@{,}c@{,}c}
& & & 3& star&
& & times& star& star&
hline
& & 2 & 6 & star&
& +& star&star & &
hline
&star & star&2 & 6&
end{tabular}
enspaceenspace
end{document}
```

It looks ok, but not good as i want. It will be ideal if there is a possibility to change some numbers in xlop commands , like /opadd because them looks amazing. In documentation of xlop i found nothing about changing symbols in result.

Is it possible to change numbers with asterisk or letters in xlop operation? If it’s not, what is the best way to make division like in image in Latex?
