How can you get 24 using only numbers 8, 8, 3, and 3?

You can use main operation signs such as +, -, x, / or addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.

Solution: two solutions

**#1:** 24=8/(3-8/3), see, the solution used 8 twice and 3 twice.

**#2: **Another solution could be 24=8+(8×3!)/3, which has 8 twice and 3 twice…

**#3: **Thom and Vishu have their best try, I consider their efforts correct.

You turn, it is a challenge, but I am curious about who can figure it out!

Have FUN to those of YOU who are interested in learning math!

Challenging.. Math wasn’t my favorite in school.. The closest I got was 24,3.. :p

Okay!

😉

ok jingle you stumped me again…smiles.

10Q,

😉

yay! ever met someone who’s mathematically challenged? that’s me! LOL!

I hope someone does it,

😉

seems interesting 🙂

It is a difficult question!

😉

8X3=8X3=24 or Square root(8X8X3X3)

Thom:

smart!

you make it.

😉

Decimal is allowed?

if decimal is allowed then i have a soln

its (8/0.3)-(8/3)

= (26.6666)-(2.6666)

= 24

Vishu:

very clever you,

😉

Oh my god…..I m really weak in math. 😦

I am no better than you, Pamela!

😉

obviously there are some really smart people around here….

happy sautrday!

Have An Awesome Day, Brian!

8X3=8X3=24 or Square root(8X8X3X3) this is my answer.

Viola:

Nice job!

😉

I like #5’s answer. I’m not much of a math person. I usually work a math problem out in my own strange way sometimes I can come up with the right answer.

Starla:

Thank you for the feedback!
