# Math Challenge

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!

2. ok jingle you stumped me again…smiles.

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

4. 8X3=8X3=24 or Square root(8X8X3X3)

5. Decimal is allowed?
if decimal is allowed then i have a soln

its (8/0.3)-(8/3)
= (26.6666)-(2.6666)
= 24

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

9. 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.
