HI

In a square 3 x 3 using the numbers 1 to 9 once only put the numbers so that:
the numbers on the top row minus the numbers in the 2nd row = the numbers on the 3rd row.

trying this for about 4 hrs and am always 1 number out.

Um.. one possible answer:

846, 327 and 519

It was rather trial and error though, and departing from that I should be getting the first digits to be subtracted requiring borrowing from the tens column.
