simple problem??
Hi there
Just wondering if anyone can help me to solve the following problem.
I've the get a total of 28 by using all of the numbers 2,3,4,5 in any order and only once.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone can get it out for me. I've gotten every number near 28 but not actually 28!!
Thanks
