There’s this game that’s really popular in my school(my school is online BTW), called the 24 game.
Essentially, you’re given 4 numbers, and you have to make 24 out of them. Once you post your solution, give 4 more numbers for the next person.
No double-posting(i.e. no posting solutions to your own numbers just to post new numbers). However, if someone asks for help, you can post hints.
No adding in numbers you are not given.
Your method is not allowed to be impossible.
All numbers must be integers.
You can use operations including factorials, combinatorials, multiplication, exponents, etc., but nothing after precalculus.
You must use all the numbers.
You cannot use bases.
You can only use the “square root function” if you have a 2. However, the 2 will be used up.
Notation(subject to change and addition):
x/y means x divided by y
xy means x times y
x^y means x raised to the power of y
x-y means x minus y
x+y means x plus y
sqrt[x][y] means y raised to the power of 1/x. If you need to take the square root of a number z, use x=2 and y=z to perform it.
xCy means x choose y (combinatorials).
<a,b> means the vector of a and b.
<a,b><c,d> means the dot product of the vectors <a,b> and <c,d>.
There are more specific restrictions, if you accidentally violate an unlisted(or listed) rule or post an incorrect solution, I’ll try pointing it out.
For now, let’s begin!
My numbers are 56, 8, 3, and 11. This one was a big puzzler for my family and friends for a long time.
Extra points if you guess which online school I attend.
