Hey all,
I could really use some help with this one:
Using four 4's and any combination of math operations, represent as many of the whole numbers 1-100 as you can.
I found operations that result in: 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 16, 20, 24, 36, 60, 64, 65, 68, and 72.
I am having a tough time finding the others from 1 through 100. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
cheyanne
