Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it is. here is the exact phrasing: Below each calculator, write a number sentence to give the answer shown. The symbols and digits to use are checked on each calculator. the answer is 19. The digits and symbols are 1, 4, 5, 7, , + and =.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, if that's the exact question, then does it say in the directions to use everything once? If so, then I have to agree with UnkleRhaukus. I can only get as far as 18 with these numbers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ahhhh. This is making my brain hurt. Either it's a type of trick question where you do use them more than once, like: 17 + 5  4 + 1 = 19 Or a typo. I'm sorry, I just can't figure this one out. ):
