Yes it is correct.

Another one is 8!

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Probability is the most important concept in modern science, especially as nobody has the slightest notion what it means.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.

### Re: Can U solve this?

8 factorial is correct!
Operations 0 1 2 3 + -
Numbers 2 3 4 5

Buy 1 for \$1, for \$0.50, for \$3, for \$2.50, for \$1.25, for \$0.25, and for \$5.

Hi julianthemath

How can 0, 1, 2 and 3 be operations?

Edit: I kind of lagged on that one.

Why don't you just have it so that people can use any numbers given to "build" the exponent? Might allow for more creative answers.

I think he means you must make 5 from those numbers and operators.
