Monday Mutant 75: Crowd Nine (equations)

In this Crowd Nine puzzle, all of the outlined equations, when read from left to right or from top to bottom, must be true when the grid is filled in. Perform operations in reading order (for example, 3-1+2 is 4, not 0, and 1+2×3 is 9, not 7). The rules are otherwise unchanged.
As previously announced, MellowMelon and I will be co-authoring a test for Logic Masters India in the coming months. What kind of content can you expect on this test? Take a look.

PI reference I presume?
also i hate soduku.

Rest assured that our test will not have any soduku. It won't have Sudoku, either.

That's too bad. I've been waiting for more Soduku puzzles for a long time. No one ever seems to shoot lasers at jedi anymore.

Your "Take a look" link: Pi-themed Fillomino (Polyominous as you say)?

And I think I seen it somewhere...in Facebook...

chaotic_iak: I can neither confirm nor deny that there will be a pi-themed Fillomino on the actual test, but yes, I did use the digits of pi to give nerds something to notice.

Also, whoa. I need to start tagging Palmer Mebane more often. It gets my blog more hits when his friends see it.

Amazing what procrastination can do to people. Usually I'm not a huge fan of Sudoku or of math-based puzzles, but because I have tons of more important things to do, I happily solved this one :)
