    Sample solution: Number of combinations equal specified number

    Find all the equations that add up to (-1) with a number set of (1)to(9)
    The answer has to fit into a rigid process. The process is as follows:

    3,8,5,5,9,2
    (5)+(-3)+(0)+(4)+(-7) this line is the increase or decrease between the number list. Increase is a positive integer and the negative is a decrease. Next solve regularly.
    (5)+(-3)+(0)+(4)+(-7)=(-1)

    Using this formula I need to find all the possible combination numbers (i.e 3,8,5,5,9,2) that equal -1?
