Here is a difficult math problem. I have been working on it for almost 3 weeks and still have not figured it out ! My math teacher gave this problem to my class as a 'just for fun' thing. It's a difficult, yet fun problem though so I thought to post it here for anyone that wants to solve it.

Problem:
Using 3/4, 3, 3, and 6 and either division, addition, subtraction, or multiplication, you must get an answer of exactly 24. The order of the numbers does not matter. (so to sum it up, make 24 out of 3/4, 3, 3, 6 using only addition, subtraction, division, or multiplication).

Good Luck !
