Puzzles: 4, 3, 2, 1 and maybe (())
Every once in a while I try another variation, and here’s todays. Use 4, 3, 2, 1 in exactly that order, and combine them with +, -, * and /, not necessarily in that order. (operations may be repeated, parentheses may be inserted). How many distinct numbers can you create?
Before you start, quiz yourself:
- How many do you expect to get?
- What percentage do you expect to be negative?
- What percentage do you expect not to be integers?
- And of the integers, what percent do you expect to be even?
