Good morning class, I hope we are all raring to go.

It is possible to break down the seven-digit number 1234567 and insert plus signs between certain digits (or groups of digits) in such a way to produce a result of 100.

One way is: 1 + 23 + 4 + 5 + 67 = 100.

Can you think of another way?

CraftyGranny, Happy Birthday to you! πŸŽπŸŽ‚πŸŽΆ
Have a lovely day!

My gurrrrls are on fire today!

I should have made the question clearer and said that you couldn't change the order, in addition to breaking down the number.
Some of you gave yourself more work, than necessary, so well done to you all. !
