A-magical Number Maze

Stage: 2 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:2 Challenge Level:2

The rows, columns and main diagonals of a $1$ - $9$ magic square add to the same number, $15$.

This magic square has had doors, with operations written in them, opened to make it into a maze.

Magic square maze.

Start wherever you like and go through every cell using all the numbers, doing the operation indicated to the numbers, and go out through the exit marked in cell $8$ with a total of $15$!

You must use the operations and numbers strictly in the order you meet them. For example, if you try starting at $4$ and go across the top row you must do it like this:

$4\times 9 = 36$

$36 - 2 = 34$

NOT like this:

$4 \times (9 -2) = 4 \times 7 =28$
