You can use all the types of methods to try and get the answer, but you MUST use 1997, and keep it in that order no matter what. Please help, too hard 4 me...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to make those numbers by using 1997

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can't rearrange them, but you can use anything you want to make it the number. You can use powers, square roots, etc.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you use powers of numbers other than 1,9,9,7?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you mean, can you square it or "double it" yes you can

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 1997 has to stay in place/ keep the same structure.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can use 1997 as many times as you want but it keeps that structure, like 1*9*9*7*1*9*9....etc?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh... no thats not usable xD

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you can only use 1997 once then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but wouldn't it be defeating the purpose if you use powers of 3 then? even tho you are multiplying it 3 times... your using a number not in that set..

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dunno xD Its hard just trying to do it the legit way xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1227 is a prime number, so I suppose the manipulation of the numbers you have should reflect that... I'm struggling quite a bit as well, but maybe you should work backwards? add 1, 9 or 7 to your target number and try to factorize it to get hints on how to create it..

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[1 \times \sqrt{9}=1 \times 3=3\]\[\sqrt[\infty]{9}=1\]\[7=7\] joining all :) 317

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1idk? @Epicteatime said yes so i did it :)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, you have to add them or multiply them to get the actual number, sorry Jade I didnt see how you got it xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02^2 • 3 • 19 = 228  (227 +1) 2 • 113 = 226 = (2271) 22 • 5 • 11 = 220 = (227  7) 2 • 32 • 13 = 234 = (227 +7) 22 • 59 = 236 = (227 +9) 2 • 109 = 218 = (227  9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm sure this is actually a simple question at it's heart, I doubt we need fancy, doctorate level thesis' on how this could work. The numbers we have are 1 , 9 , 9 , 7 , they have to be dealt with in that order, but they can be subtracted and added to each other, as well as divided and multiplied. We can use any number we wish when "doubling" or calculating to the power, right @epicteatime ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Epicteatime I got ONE answer. \[1 * 9^{2.5}  9  7 = 227 \]

Jadedry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So, I need to subtract 14 from \[9^{2.5}\] in order to get 229. How can I make 14?  Also, congrats! I'm sure you can turn the 7 into a 0 somehow...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if we can use any powers and round off, would \[1 \times 9^{5/2} + 9^{3/2} \times 7^{0.026}\] work? cus it gives 271.401..
