In a sudoku style maybe I'll look out for the nerdle equivalent of killer sudoku (which is normal sudoku crossed with kakuro)

Mathematically lines 2 and 3 are the same (a+b+c vs c+b+a) but they wanted a specific order.

It took me all six rows, but my last three were about finding the last digit for what were in fact the same equation with a different constant.

Managed it in 3 attempts today, although I only had the = in the right place until the 3rd line.

Had a bit of a blind spot over the order of operation, so it took a lot longer than it should have done.

Failed yesterday. I knew #2 and #8 were the same digit but had 3 lines left and 6 or 7 options to choose.

I got yesterday's on the 5th line, though it did take me until early evening and a pad of paper to scratch a couple of answers down

Does everyone use the same opening line?

I vary mine, but try to use as many digits and operators as possible to either eliminate or confirm presence, even if not position. So four black spaces in my first line today eliminates four possibilities.

Yes, similar here. Two operators, an equals (obviously) and five digits
