# Use 2 0 1 and 8 to make 67

Use $2$ $0$ $1$ and $8$ to make the number $67$

RULES

1. You must use all 4 digits. Only the digits 2, 0, 1, and 8 can be used. You can make multi-digit numbers out of the numbers. Examples: 20, 82, 2.8

2. The square function may NOT be used. Nor may the cube, raise to a fourth power, or any other function that raises a number to a specific power. You may use the ^ operation if you use a digit, for example, [(8 + 1)^2 - 0!] is acceptable (if you're trying to get 80), because 2, 0, 1, and 8 is used. However, [20 ^ 2 / 8 + 1] can't be used to get 51 because it uses an extra 2.

3. Sorry, but the integer function may NOT be used. Nor may the round, floor, ceiling, or truncate functions.

4. +, -, *, /, (), !, sqrt, ^, and !! may be used for functions.

Please no brute-force methods. Good luck.

I see that there are many answers. I like #3 because it doesn't use more than 2 factorials, but the most upvoted one gets the credit.

Wow! You guys are good!

• $8^2+0!+1=66$ dammit! Sep 9, 2018 at 0:12
• Fun fact! $\frac{8!}{20}+1=2017$ Sep 9, 2018 at 2:14
• Out of curiosity, why 67? Sep 9, 2018 at 3:47

$(8!!!!+1)\times2+0!\\=(8\cdot4+1)\times2+1\\=(32+1)\times2+1\\=33\times2+1\\=66+1\\=67$

and similarly, with the digits in order:

$20!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 1 + 8$, where $20!^{(17)}=20\cdot3=60$.

• I think $8!! = 8 \times 6 \times 4 \times 2$ Sep 8, 2018 at 22:28
• @Marius I think this is correct based on the definition of the quadruple factorial; it’s up to OP to decide whether the quadruple factorial is allowed as a valid operation for this puzzle. Great answer though, JonMark Perry!! Love it! :D Sep 8, 2018 at 22:33
• 8!!!! is a multi-factorial

$$8^2 + \sqrt{\frac{0!}{.\bar{1}}} = 64 + \sqrt{\frac{1}{\frac{1}{9}}} = 64 + 3 = 67$$ Not that $.\bar{1}$ is 0.111111... recurring.

• Hello! Welcome to the Puzzling Stack Exchange (Puzzling.SE) and great answer, too! I see that you are familiar with the Stack Exchange community since you have been given the $+100$ reputation bonus (and correct me if I'm wrong, but have I seen you on Math.SE?); though I still suggest you visit the Help Center for more information (particularly here then here in the Asking section as you have not asked a question yet). Happy Puzzling! :D Sep 9, 2018 at 5:21
• Nice answer! Welcome to Puzzling. Sep 9, 2018 at 8:06

$8!!! - 12 - 0! = 8 \times 5 \times 2 - 12 - 1 = 80-13 = 67$

• that is brilliant, but is your function after the 8 allowed???

• don't know. I guess we'll find out Sep 8, 2018 at 22:42
• plus one and we will see :-) didn't know that was possible...

75 (20 minus 18 in base 75 is 67 when converted back to decimal.)

How about 2, 0 + 1, 8. If 2, 0 is in base 16 and 1, 8 is in base 27, it adds to 67 in base 10.
