Tough numbers today.

1. ETHMOIDS
2. GENERALS
3. 780 = (50 + 2*(9 + 5))*10
4. REMISED
5. FUCOID (also CUBOID)
6. 816 = 2*(4*(75 + 25) + 7 + 1) [1 off]
7. TRAILERS
8. 344 = 4*(75 + 10) + 10 - 6 [1 off]
9. [no answer, but it is TAILGATED]

The numbers arounds are all solvable. There are three solutions to round 6, with the most findable one feeling like 817 = (7 + 4)*(75 - 2 - 1) + 25. There are two solutions to round 8, almost identical, and disappointingly easy in retrospect: 343 = (4*10 - 6)*10 + 75/25. (The other solution makes the 34 as 4*6 + 10 instead.)
