SQRT(8 * 8 * 3 * 3) = SQRT(576) = 24
(3rdROOT(8) + 3rdROOT(8))! = (2 + 2)! = 4! = 24
The puzzle of getting 24 from 8,8,3,3 using basic operators is well known. I have come across a variation which stipulates that you have to do this using one basic operator only. i.e. If you use multiplication to start with, you have to use multiplication only. All other operations such as factorial, squaring etc. are allowed.Can anybody help?
