Re: Can U solve this?

Hi;


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Hi julianthemath

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

Re: Can U solve this?

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

I'm curious about this too! That's why I asked if my answer was correct.

Edit: I kind of lagged on that one. dizzy

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.
