Sum It Up

or even

2*4*108

So should we now just select 6 random numbers - plus the target? ( that's not a complaint, just a possible natural evolution of the game). It seems that the old format was gettin a bit easy

54*9-(21/7*4)+3 = 477

I think it is more challenging to have to use all 6 numbers

no, you got the most numbers in the equation you should go.

Hey, should we count if all numbers are used?

So that if someone reaches the total with all the numbers he beats someone who reached the total using only some of the numbers?

I just think all numbers must be used to reach the total period. Some of the answers are easy if you can just use a few. Trying to make them all work is more challenging. *shrug* You all can do what you want but my future answers I'm going to use all the numbers. So there.

2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 ?= 987

--edit--

The count of numbers used might not work because if you got it with say 4 numbers how long would you wait to know it was your turn?

@TheCube: Cubie you need to post the next set of numbers.

@All: Do we agree that we have to use all the numbers?

(84-14+9)(4+2)-1=473

am working on the next. that part's harder than the solve. be right back.

didnt try to solve this one, just worked backwards from one solution, so it might be easy. or it might be not....

1, 2, 7, 9, 31, 75 = 369

75+(31*9)+(2*7)+1 = 369

I prefer to just make up numbers.

1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 ?= 444

(37)((56+9*8+5)/7)=703

5, 1, 7, 3, 92, 74 = 981

hmm, within 1 point

(10+6)*(42+8)-7-9=784

:duh:

can numbers be combined like 6,7 into 67 or 76?
