I’m stuck on trying get $59$ by the numbers $1,9,4,8$ in order. I have no idea if it’s possible, I made it for 1-70 just not 59.
I made it without order: $(-1+8)*9-4$
You can use not only the basic math operators, I tried factorial, powers, square roots, logs, even binomial coefficient but that we read it from top to down.
I would like for help from anyone, maybe a solution with an operator I didn’t think of.
By the way, do you think it’s possible for someone to write a program that we give couple numbers, and ask to get other number, with or not order?
EDIT: I guess there can be some solution, but in my opinion using a function symbol, or the floor function, is cheating.
The solutions I liked and I don't think we need anymore:
