This is a nice challenge.

Can we use any math symbol? If we can, this is solveable.

(6!) + 100 + 50 + 50 - 10 - 25 - 6  - 6

(6*5*4*3*2*1) + (100 + 50) + (50 - 10) + (-25 - 6  - 6)

(720) + 150 +40 - 37

(720) + 190 - 37

910 - 37

873

100 75 50 25 10 6

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

10 (100 - 75/6 ) - (50/25)

10 (87.5) - 2

875 - 2 = 873

Nice answer CPhill.

I actually like yours better than mine, because you only used one of each of the numbers given. I think this is what it was meant for.

If you think about it, if you could use endless amounts of any number, you would come to the answer of 873 eventually just by adding and suctracting numbers!
