That's two 7's, two 2's, and two 1's...not four 7's and one 1.

since the puzzle says 1 twice, u r allowed to use 2 ones

(7*7)+7+7+1 = 100

BTW, it's octal <!-- s:) --><!-- s:) -->

Yeah, I thought of 77/7/7 +1 base 8 = 100 and 77/1 + 7/7 = 100... which is the same thing in octal. Curse you computer science!

Ha Ha ! !

This was the first solution I thought of.

The second was the 177-77=100

this would work if you can have indicies (which is a mathmatical symbol)

7^2+7^2+(7/7)+1

works for me
(the ^2 is squared btw)

might have another here

7^3= 343

343/(1+7/7)^2=343/4=85.75
85.75+7+7= 100 to 1 d.p.

so...
(7^3)/(1+7/7)^2+7+7
=100 to 1 d.p.
but thats 7 sevens

100 - Back to the Number Puzzles
Using four sevens (7) and a one (1) create the number 100. Except (Edit: In addition to) the five numerals you can use the usual mathematical operations +, -, x, :, root and brackets ().

Spoiler for Solution

The number 100 already exists. I can't create it.

thanks for your "valuable" input ... based on previous warnings (you obviously ignored them) and the basic rules (especially on nit-picking) - your account has been suspended
