Another solution would be

take 7-7=0

7-7=0

and put the one in front of it which would be100

How about this?

77+(7+7+7)+(7/7)+1

100=77+23

=77+(21)+(2)

=77+(7+7+7)+(1+1)

=77+(7+7+7)+((7/7)+1)

uhh its just 7^2+7^2+1+1

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

Hi all,

I thought of a unique solution...

By inverting 2 of the 4 - 7's

1 L7 L7

Ha Ha ! !

Clever!

I've done a challenge a bit like this: create all numbers from 1-200 using 4 4s and the following mathematical operators: +, -, /, x, ! (factorial), !! (double factorial), INT, MOD, SQRT, ^ (power). You can't do squares etc. - if you use powers the number has to be raised to its fourth power (or 4x4th power etc.).

It is much harder than it looks like!

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

The language should be changed in the problem. Drop the word "EXCEPT" and replace it with the phrase "In addition to".
