    Sort of a game

    Someone asked me how to get 6 with 2 2 2 using any mathematical operations ( +,-,*,/, ^2, ^3..., sqaure root, cube root,...)

    For 2 2 2, 2+2+2=6
    For 3 3 3, 3*3 -3=6 ( or 3+3 * (3^0))
    For 4 4 4, square root 4 + square root 4 + square root 4=6
    For 5 5 5, 5+ (5/5)=6
    For 7 7 7, 7- (7/7)=6
    For 8 8 8, cube root 8 + cube root 8 + cube root 8=6
    For 9 9 9, (9+9)/(square root 9) OR square root 9 *square root 9-square root 9
    Now am stuck on the last part, that is 1 1 1 to get 6

    (1+1+1)! (factorial)
    3!=3x2x1=6

    Wouldn't it be <br />
(cos(0)+cos(0)+cos(0))!<br />
?
