Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyCan you do that? You can use any number up to two times only, and you have to use all the numbers. Okay? Any operations allowed, especially factorials, exponents, etc. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #2 20130511 04:59:10
Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130511 11:22:24
Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyI didn't get the answer, I made it up myself. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #4 20130511 11:39:07
Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyThen we will go with the concat solution. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyOkay. Your grade 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #6 20130511 13:42:29
Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyThanks for that! But there might be another solution. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyUses all numbers exactly twice. Hmmm. Now to try to do it using them once only. Bob You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei #9 20130511 17:31:29
Re: Make 1,234 using the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 onlyIt's okay. I'll consider your solution. 246 pages on Prime Numbers Wiki (+1) #10 20130511 17:42:59
