Number Puzzle #17- Target Number 178 -
Using the numbers 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, and 8 (in any order), can you write a mathematical expression
(e.g. (6*6*7)-(8/8)+7) with a result equal to 178?
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. 8 and 7 to make 87).
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.)?
