Number Puzzle #13- Target Number 256 -
Using the numbers 1, 2, 8, 9, 9, and 10 (in any order), can you write a mathematical expression
(e.g. (8+9+10)*9-(2/1)) with a result equal to 256?
You may use any of the four basic math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division) as well
as parenthesis. Some additional rules:
1. You are not required to use all six numbers.
2. You may NOT
join numbers (e.g. 1, 2, 8 to make 128).
3. You may only use a number as many times as it appears above.
Do you have a suggestion
for this puzzle (e.g. something that should
be mentioned/clarified in the question or solution, bug, typo, etc.)?
