HOPPED (thought about HOPPLED but did not think it was a word)
SEATING
(4*9-(9-6))*25=825 (2 off)
ERECTOR
FACETS
Geoff's way
x GRAILS due to requiring capital G. I think I have made this error previously.
3*(100+5)+50=365
x should have got this

1. LAPPED
2. SEATING. Rejected the valid SAUTEING.
3. one off: 828 = (4*25-7)*9 - 9. The target was quite gettable.
4. CHARTER
5. FATTIES
6. 441 = (100-2)*(7+2)*5/10
7. ASOCIAL
8. 365 = 7*50 + 10 + 5
9. Nothing, tricky one.
