That depends on how you want to check if it's a correct equation. Very easy would be

x=[answer box]
y=[answer box]

Would "x+2=6" or "sqrt(x)=2" also be correct for 1.?

If you could send a concrete problem, I'll be happy to code some samples.

Customresponse would be the easiest solution for this case. I believe there is a template that checks if the answer is 90 or -90, I would recommend editing that.

Again, customresponse would likely work best.

For those you'll likely need to provide a radiobuttonresponse, I don't see another way of inputting this.
