MIND YOUR 4s. Use four 4s and any operations you can think of to get to each target number.

As for
mathematical operations, anything goes! The basic +, -, *, / along with exponents, roots, decimals (4.4 or .4),
concatenation (44), percentages, repeating decimals ( ), and many more are legal. A few have been filled in to
get you started. Remember to include exactly 4 4s (thats four fours) in each equation, and use proper notation.

FOXY FIVES
Sheet 3
Directions:

Use these five numbers: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11. (Notice these are the first five prime numbers!)
Using all five numbers (each exactly once), make the totals indicated in each problem.
Write each combination as an equation. Be careful of the order of operations!

1. Find the smallest whole number. But you must use each arithemetic operation exactly once.
_________________________________________________________________________________
2. Find the smallest odd prime number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
3. Find the smallest odd natural number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
4. Find the smallest prime number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
5. Find the smallest composite natural number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
6. Find the largest composite natural number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
7. Find the largest odd natural number. No restrictions on the operations.
_________________________________________________________________________________
8. Find the largest even natural number. But like #1, you may use each operation only once.
_________________________________________________________________________________
9. Find a natural number using only subtraction.
_________________________________________________________________________________
10. Find the largest prime number. No restrictions on the operations.
