Here are the rules to the game:
1. You are given 4 numbers, e.g. 1234 and must use each number, only once, to make 24
2. You may use addition, subtraction, multiplication & division as many times as you want
3. Once you've solved the problem from the post above, make your own by writing your 4 digits (you can only use numbers from & including 0-9
Note: There may be more than one solution to a problem. Feel free to post as many as you can think of!
Example: Use 1234 to make 24.
(4+2) x (3+1) = 24!
First problem below:
Make 24 using the numbers "6371"
Tough one Ben! What's your solution? Is square root acceptable in this situation?
Can I do √9 x (4 x 2) + 0 = 24?
Lol that's too easy. Sorry, didn't notice that 7+3+9+5 would do the trick. Haha! **embarrassed**
Okay if no one wants to debase themselves by solving 6666 I'll post a real one
The last time I was in a math class it was 1984. I can't tell you how proud I am of myself. lol
I didn't take a single math course in college. But I used to like math.
1984 was 9th gd. It was actually 1985, 10th gd. math. I think I'm done here. lol
Those numbers have not been approved. You might as well be using square roots.
Regarding 6666 - here's one solution:
6+6+6+6 = 24
You cannot use square roots Brycekiguchi. Only addition, subtraction, division or multiplication.
7889 --> √9 * 8 * (8-7) = 24, also
8 * log_(9-7) 8 = 8 * (log base 2 of 8) = 8*3 = 24
sorry kiwi I couldn't find a solution without square roots or logs, lol.
now try 11111111
yes, that's eight 1s. you can use any mathematical operations you want
[(1+1)^(1+1+1)]*(1+1+1) if exponents are legal in this game.
and next is 3574
That's all right Cal
If addition, subtraction, multiplication or division doesn't work - feel free to get creative
I found 2 Solutions to 3574:
(3*4) + (5+7)
(5-4) + 7)) * 3
Here's another to try! -> 4567
Got 23...28...26...hmm think I'm gonna sleep on it and find the answer tomorrow unless someone else gets there before me

Alright, here's how this works. I'll post something bad, then the next person has to post something good about that bad thing. And then they add something bad to the bottom of their post. Of course the 'something bad' can be based entirely on your own opinion.Example:Post 1:Carrots Post 2:They are...

So far I've got 8+ in only 2 days! And I'm not stopping anytime soon. I like a wide variety of topics: I'm a voracious reader, and I almost never forget anything. So my braindumps are awesome. Watch for me!
