I've got this idea of a great forum game from a guy at EEP(Empire Earth Planet). The rules are very simple, but please read them all before playing!

These are the new rules of the game!
The following 4 numbers are present: 1 3 4 7

Using these four numbers you have to create equations that their answers are whole numbers. These are examples of things you can do with these numbers:

Addition 1+3=4
Subtraction 3-1=2
Multiplication 4x3=12
Division 4:2=2 or 4/1=4
Power 34=81
Fractions 1x3/4=0.75
You can also add numbers togather like this -> 2 and 3 make 23.


You can use each of the four numbers only ONCE.

I'll start the game off by creating the first three numbers.

1 = 1(3-4+2)
2 = (7-4)/3+1
3 = 1[4-(7-3!)]




Little last minute rule: You can only post one answer per post and you cannot post right after yourself, you must wait untill someone else posts.

This is the best signature ever!

I thought you had to use all four numbers?

Yeag, you have to use all four numbers.

32 = 31-(4-3-2)

Also I think we should include fractions. They may help a bit when we get to harder numbers.

I like to break the system

Take that 47!

Oooh I see. Therefore:

52= (4! x 2) + (3 + 1)

We might have to start allowing numbers greater than 4. In fact, we will.

I think numbers like 1, 3, 4, 7 would be good as the numbers are more spread out and not just boring like 1, 2 ,3 e.c.t.
