Your goal is to reach the destination unity.

starting from $3462$ with three intermediate stops.

You are allowed to use only 2 mathematical operations..multiplication and Exponentiation.

All the digits from the previous step have to be used only once in the same order they appear.

$A$. $3462$

$B$. $2916$

$C$. $512$

$D$. $10$

Please provide the journey details.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, but I thought the destination is 10. $\endgroup$ – Matti Jun 27 at 17:02
  • $\begingroup$ Destination is unity..see whether you can reach the same destination starting with 2592. $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 27 at 17:06
  • $\begingroup$ @Uvc Destination infinity: (2^5)*(9^2)=2592 :P $\endgroup$ – Gilles-Philippe Paillé Jun 27 at 17:17
  • $\begingroup$ You cannot reach unity..you will be in loop $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 27 at 17:18
