I got it without looking at the answer!!
Basically I was looking for a 9 to make 3 * 9 =27, so I tried adding 4 to the last number, and this worked for the other ** too.

Its slightly different for the ++, it only seems to work if you add the second number on again.

Good puzzle

I got the rule for the ++, but I couldn't figure out the one for **. I realized that 3*9 was 27, but I never thought to add four to the five...oh, well...maybe next time!
