Sum It Up

89 posts in this topic

The host posts a random three digit number and 6 other number (four random from 1 to 10 and another two from 25, 50, 75 & 100)

Then everyone else would have to use the six number to reach the three digit one using +, -, / and *. The first one to get the number wins, or the one with the closes total, and become the next host.

For example 485 with 3, 4, 6, 9, 25, 100.

4*100 = 400

3*25 = 75

400 + 75 = 475

475 + 9 = 484.

I will start:

Total to reach: 524

Number to use: 2, 3, 7, 9, 50 & 100

No. Lets say rounded to the nearest 1000th.

And I forgot to put in my first post that everybody is allowed only one try per round. (So its a question of timing. Do I put my almost answer there, or do I try to get closer and hope no one in the mean time post the almost answer.)

my fault that I didn't say it earlier. So I will accept the 523.778 answer.

Bit too easy that one. I guess with random number it sometimes is.

TheCube is next.
