    Math question

    I am in college and my little brother is in a 6th math came to me with a question I think can not have a solution. His teacher said it was extra credit and there is a solution. So i thought i would put Finheaven smarts to the test. So are you smarter than a 6th grader?

    Ok here it with the numbers 2, 7, 12, and 24 find a solution that will give you 24. You must use all four numbers to get 24 and in any order and only once. You can use +,-,*, or /. Good luck!

    Haha....no wonder I never made it out of the 6th grade....

    Try this...

    12 / 2 = 6

    7 - 6 = 1

    1 X 24 = 24

    do not fill bad i can not do it either without adding another number or getting rid of a number. yeah if you add the 6 it works and if you exclude any of the four numbers i can make it work but not with just 2,7,12,24. I am in calculus and i can not do this sad just sad.

    Yea we used to play this game all the time..

    It was called the 24 game..

    There are numbers that are so much tougher to make into 24..

    This one was pretty easy
