Here are a couple of number puzzles for you.

 

you can use some or all thes numbers but you cannot use any of them twice.

the operations are multiply, division, addition and subtraction  (and brackets if you want)

The aim is to get as close as possible to the target number.

 

1)     4, 6, 25, 50, 75, 100      The target number is  821 

 

 

 

2)    2, 8, 25, 50, 75 and 100   The target number is 431       (I think this one may be very difficult)

 

 

 

I'll post the answers after you have had a go.

(75 + 50) * 6 + 100 - 25 - 4 = 821

75 * (50 - 6) / 4 - 100 / 25 = 821

(100 + 50 - 25) * 6 + 75 - 4 = 821

(100 - 75) * (25 + 6)  + 50 - 4 = 821

(100 + 6 - 75) * 25 + 50 - 4 = 821

100 * (50 + 6) * 4 / 25 - 75 = 821

 

----------------------------------------------------

(75 * 50 - 100 - 2) / 8 - 25 = 431

(75 * (50 - 100 / 25) - 2) / 8 = 431

50*75/4-100-25+6 = 818.5

Closest I can get for the first.
