  1. my answer was:5 to the 4 power +4×2=1258

  2. my answer was 5 to the 4 power +4×2=1258 too

    • Remember… order of operations matter. Most teachers use GEMS or PEMDAS. In any case, you would need to multiply first before adding.

      Example: 5 to the 4th power plus 4 times 2 would be…(exponents first)… 625 plus 4 times 2… (then multiply second)… 625 plus 8… (finish it)… 633.

      Hope this helps!

      • If you did pemdas it would be different because (5⁴+4)2 would then be (625+4)2 then (1250+8)=1258. But all of these won’t work because you can only use each number once and 4 is used twice in all of these.

  3. 2+(3×7+9)=(1-5)/(8×4)
    2x(3/7-9)=(1+5)x(8+4)
    2-(3x7x9)=(1-5)-(8/4)
    22/(3-7/9)=(1×5)(8-4)
    2x(3+7+9)=(1/5)(8×4)

  4. 2^3+4×1=12
    1^2+3×5=16
    5^3+4×3=137
    4^4+5×2=266
    5^5+1×2=3127
    4^5+3×1=1027

  5. 4^5+3×2=1030

  6. 4^5+2*3 or 4^5+3*2 is the answer I think.

  7. 4^5+2*3 or 4^5+3*2

  8. 5^4+3×2=1,256
    4^3+5×2=138
    4^5+3×1=1,027
    3^5+2×4=980

  9. 4²+5×2 or 5²+2×4

  10. 5^4+4×2= 258

  11. I got 2 over the power of 3 +5×4
