Arithmetic 3

Place the numbers from 1 to 9 inside the circles and replace each black dot with one of the four basic arithmetic symbols (plus, minus, times, divide) so that the six expressions thus formed equal the numbers 5, 14, 16, 39, 65, and 67 in some order. Multiplication and division are carried out before addition and subtraction; in the case of two operations of the same priority, the leftmost one is executed first. All rows read from left to right, the first and last columns read from top to bottom, and the middle column reads from bottom to top.
