    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.

    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.
