# Use 2,3,4,5 to get 26 using only + - * /

Use 2,3,4,5 and + - * / only once each (it's not necessary to use all of them) to equal 26. I know 2 answers, but there is a 3rd (or more) :)

One:

24 + 5 - 3

Two:

25 + 4 - 3

• thank you! This was the 2 I knew, but I figured out the 3rd :) – Consultant Jun 14 '18 at 20:18
• @Consultant If concatenation is available to make “25”, this should also be legal: 2 concat (5+4-3). – Lawrence Jun 15 '18 at 12:05

So I figured out the 3rd one I did not know :)

$(3/2+5)\times 4=26$

A little bit of cheating leads me to:

$5^2 +(4-3)=26$

$5*(3*2)-4$
