Multi-Equation Puzzles

Each of these puzzles is two puzzles in one. First, use all the digits and symbols given to form 3 correct mathematical equations. Then drop one of the digits, use the rest to form 3 different equations. An example of a solved puzzle is given below. Each puzzle below has a unique solution.

0 1 1 1 2 3 4 7 7 9 + + × = = =0 + 1 = 1     1 + 2 = 3     7 × 7 = 49
drop 0     2 + 7 = 9     3 + 4 = 7     1 × 1 = 1
