I saw a clock the other day with only 9's on its face.

Thirty-six 9's in all, three each at the twelve hour-markers.

Can you design such a clock face?

That is, express each of the numbers 1-12 using three 9's

Along with standard math symbols.

Extra credit for three different expressions for each hour.
