:?:
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.

The most popular incorrect answer Twalker...
'4' was not used

OK, then
1^3 * 4 * 6 =24

Is this allowed?

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

Actually think I have it
Yes

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

Good Problem.
