Namelss' Riddle:
Arrange the numbers 1 3 4 6 in an equation to make 24.
Each number must be used once and only once.
You can use any number and combination of addition, subtraction, multiplication or division operators, and brackets to enforce an order of evaluation.
e.g. 4 + ((3  1) x 6), wrong result, but valid form.
No tricks:
 It's 24 in decimal
 Each number is separate, you can't use 1 and 4 together to make fourteen etc.
 It's not a word game where 24 means "to for" or "a day" or anything like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wow it took me like and hour to figure this out at first. Good job. Answer(as mentioned):one of the 'fathers' is also a grandfather. Therefore the other father is both a son and a father to the grandson. In other words, the one father is both a son and a father.
