Hello.

My hope, is to get a list of three numbers combinations or permutations with the numbers placed at B2:F2



On A9 is the target number that generate all the conditions.

First on row 7 or [HRZ] DIFF Is the subtraction 9 – 2 = 7

And 2 – 5 = 3



Row 11 I will provide this number, this numbers will be subtract from

The target number in other words 9 – 3 = 6, 2 – 1 = 1 and abs(5 – 7)= 2

I use absolute value for all.



One of the conditions are

if you add or subtract the row 11 from 9 meaning

9 and 2 and 5 if you add or subtract 3 and 1 and 7

The 1 in the middle has to be avoid also. Is part of the differents to avoid.



Are the result I am trying to avoid

that numbers can’t be part of the list,



and 6 is not part of the row 4 or selected numbers

8 and 5 and 9 and 1 and 2 are the numbers to be in the list

In the case 9 + 3 = 12 then 12 – 10 max number has to be 9

Plus the sum can’t be equal either.

9+2+5 = 16 so if the combinations or permutation add 16 can’t be part of the list either.

So on row 17 are the example of the numbers that fit all the condition





Take me to long to do it manually.



I know is a little confusing, but I will be glad to answer any question

Thanks for reading this.
