1)   2, 5, 7, 9, 75, 100      The magic number is 557

557=500+55+2

= 500+75-20+2

= 500 +75 - 18

557= 5*100 +75 - 2*9

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

2)   4, 7, 25, 50, 75, 100    The magic number is 750

750=100*7+50

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

3)   4, 5, 7, 8, 25, 50       The magic number is 781

781 = 785 - 4

= 5 (   157   ) - 4

= 5 (  200 - 50 + 7 ) -4

781  = 5 ( 8*25 - 50 + 7 ) -4

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

4)   2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8              The magic number is  945

945 = 1000 - 55

945 = 103 - ( 6*8+7)

945 = (2*5)3 - ( 6*8+7)

OR

factor(945) = (3^3*5)*7     Used the calc to get prime factors

945 = 7 * 5 * 9 *3

945 = 7 * 3 * 45

if you used 7 and 3 like this then you have 2,5,6 and 8 to make 45.

45=48-3 = (6*8)-(5-2)

945 = 7 * 3 * [(6*8)-(5-2)]

OR

945 =  7 * (5-3) * [(6*8)-3]

4^5-(25*8)+(50-7) = 781

1024 - 200+43 =781

1024-243 =781
