Arithmetic Puzzle

In this puzzle you need to insert any arithmetic sign in between the same digit (from 1 to 9) repeated thrice. The final result should be 6 in each case. I’m doing one for illustration –

2      2      2 = 6

can be expressed as –

2 + 2 + 2 = 6

Solve the following yourself –

1      1      1 = 6
2      2      2 = 6
3      3      3 = 6
4      4      4 = 6
5      5      5 = 6
6      6      6 = 6
7      7      7 = 6
8      8      8 = 6
9      9      9 = 6

Remember, each equation can be solved in more than one way. Post your answers in the comment section below.
