## Question

hello friends!

i have a Question!

We have 5 number :4 - 5 - 7 - 8-11 and four operations - Subtraction - Multiplication - Split-plus (+ . - . * . / )

Between the 5 to number only want to use one of the four main action and the sum of our end is 20

for example:

8/4=2
2*11=22
22-7=15
15+5=20

and:

7*11=77

77 + 8 = 85

85 - 5 = 80
80/4=20

Of the following list, the examples given in the problem are #14 and #10, respectively:
1. { 5,  8,  7, 11,  4}; {+, *, -, /}
2. { 5, 11,  4,  7,  8}; {+, /, *, -}
3. { 5, 11,  7,  4,  8}; {+, *, /, -}
4. { 5, 11,  7,  4,  8}; {*, -, /, +}
5. { 7,  4,  8,  5, 11}; {/, *, -, +}
6. { 7,  4,  8, 11,  5}; {/, *, +, -}
7. { 7,  8,  4,  5, 11}; {*, /, -, +}
8. { 7,  8,  4, 11,  5}; {*, /, +, -}
9. { 7, 11,  5,  8,  4}; {*, -, +, /}
10. { 7, 11,  8,  5,  4}; {*, +, -, /}
