Simply state your belief as a RULE in the puzzle.

Once more: I posted (1 + 2) / (1/8) and (1+2) * 8 * 1 as 2 solutions
because the ORIGINAL wording of the puzzle did NOT prohibit that.

If YOU want to prohibit that, that's OK: but start a NEW thread and SAY SO.
uh, not that serious.

6 8 8 10,

3 different solutions

8(8+10) / 6

6*8 / (10-8)

8 / (6/(8+10))

1,2,3,60 ; 2 solutions

3. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

Here is another one
(10-6)×8-8

To tired to think now... will come back after the Maker Faire

60 / (3 - 1/2)

8 / (6/(8+10))

1,2,3,60 ; 2 solutions

4. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

Distinct Solutions for [ 1 2 3 60 ] are:
[1] 60/(3-1/2)
[2] 60/(3/2+1)

In all honesty, I got the first one by hand, second one I consulted a little program I wrote.

Make 24 for any 4 numbers between 1 and 100 - 24theory, solves 24 the math game

Here you go, any 4 number between 1 and 100. I fixed a couple bugs in the previous version. let's see if there is still any.

Reviving:

4, 4, 7, 7

7(4 - 4/7)

1,2,3,33
2 solutions

8. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

33- (2+1) * 3
(33/3 +1 ) * 2

I didn't cheat with a computer

1 1 23 24

3 solutions

10. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

24 + 23(1-1)
23 / (1 - 1/24)
1 / (1 - 23/24)

23 24 25 26
2 solutions

11. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

(25+23)/(26-24)
26-(25+23)/24

3 4 15 24 4 solutions

Best math 24 site: Play math 24 game - 24theory, solves 24 the math game

12. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

1) 24 / ((15 / 3) - 4)
2) 4 * (24 - (15 + 6))
3) (24 / 4) + 15 + 3
4) ((15 * 3) - 24) + 4

9, 9, 9, 12

13. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

12 * (9 + 9) /9

3 3 5 7

$(3 \cdot 5 - 7) \cdot 3$

I don't think that this one's been used: 1 3 5 7

-Dan

15. ## Re: 24 Game Marathon

1 3 5 7

(7 + 5) * (3 - 1)

How about some big numbers? 5 14 21 23
