Kiwi Maxposted 10 years ago

Welcome Aboard!

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"

Sounds interesting.
6 * 3 + 7 - 1 = 24

Tough one Ben! What's your solution? Is square root acceptable in this situation?

Can I do √9 x (4 x 2) + 0 = 24?

Kiwi Maxposted 10 years agoin reply to this

You cannot use square roots, sorry , however I'm not sure how you would do without it. Well done nonetheless for solving this one Brycekiguchi!

Ben, do you have a solution that doesn't involve using square roots?

Hmm... (7*7) - (5*5) = 24

Lol that's too easy. Sorry, didn't notice that 7+3+9+5 would do the trick. Haha! **embarrassed**

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

Beth37posted 10 years agoin reply to this

Those numbers have not been approved. You  might as well be using square roots.

wildernessposted 10 years agoin reply to this

You posted them - they must be approved.

Kiwi Maxposted 10 years agoin reply to this

Regarding 6666 - here's one solution:

6+6+6+6 = 24

Next one to try is 1993!

((√9 * 9) - 3) * 1 = 24

You cannot use square roots Brycekiguchi. Only addition, subtraction, division or multiplication.

Okay. Im outta here then!

calculus-geometryposted 10 years agoin reply to this

I'll play square roots with you!  I'll even let you use logarithms

3. 0
calculus-geometryposted 10 years ago

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

FitnezzJimposted 10 years agoin reply to this

[(1+1)^(1+1+1)]*(1+1+1)   if exponents are legal in this game.

and next is 3574

Kiwi Maxposted 10 years agoin reply to this

nice one Jim!

Kiwi Maxposted 10 years agoin reply to this

That's all right Cal

If addition, subtraction, multiplication or division doesn't work - feel free to get creative

4. 63
Kiwi Maxposted 10 years ago

I found 2 Solutions to 3574:

(3*4) + (5+7)

(5-4) + 7)) * 3

Here's another to try! -> 4567

(7+5)*(6-4) = 24
