use 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 in the equation ?/? + ?/? - ?/? = 1/30

 

\(\dfrac16 + \dfrac23-\dfrac45 = \dfrac{1}{30}\)

I tried creating a computer program for this problem, and it couldn't find an answer; it would simply go in an infinite loop! Something tells me that there is no solution to this. 

 

If you put in an answer that is possible (like 53/60), then the program finds the answer in very little at all. \(\frac{2}{6}+\frac{3}{4}-\frac{1}{5}=\frac{53}{60}\).

 

Anyone who wants to see it can; here's the link for those curious

 

It is possible that I am misinterpreting this question as well; I am assuming that the numbers listed (1-6) can only be used once. Is this a correct assumption?
