By using exactly once the numbers 1, 3, 4 and 6 as well as the four basic operations (no constraints on the number of uses for the operations), try to get to 24.








1st correct post will receive 2 tickets for England v France on June 13th Euro 2004.

6-4 = 2
1+3=4 ergo 2 and 4...LOL making it up as I go along..you didn't say 2 by tens and 4 by units you just said two numbers 2 and 4..."tens and units"..how can you tell I am doing junior maths ;)

1+3 = 4 * 6 = 24??

Or how about
combining 1 & 4 together as 14, don't know if this is allowed
then could do
3*(14-6) = 24

Yes

6/(1 - (3/4)) = 24

Good Problem.
