Directions: Using the digits 1 to 5, at most one time each, place a digit in each box to create an expression with the largest possible value.

### Hint

Where would you put your largest digit?

### Answer

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

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

I thought you could only use the numbers 1-5 one time.

at the top it says “Using the digits 1 to 5, at most one time each”

My answer was 4 to the power of 5 because I did 4^5+3*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.

5^4+3×2

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)

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

4^5+3*2

You can only use 5 once

4^5+3×2=1030

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

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

5^4+3×2=1,256

4^3+5×2=138

4^5+3×1=1,027

3^5+2×4=980

4²+5×2 or 5²+2×4

5^4+4×2= 258

5^4+4×2

4^5+3×2

I got 2 over the power of 3 +5×4

It would be 5 to the power of 4 and the answer to that would be 625.

4^5+2*3

the answer will be 4^5+2*3 or it could be 4^5+3*2 any of these can be use as an answer.

2

4 +4×5=

16+ 20 = 36

2

3 +4×5= 9+ 20 =29

3^2+5*4

5^3+2*4 = 133

5^4+3*2

4^5 + 2*3 = 1030

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

4^5 + 5*3 = 1039

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

You can’t use 4 more than one time according to the directions.

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

4^5+3*2

I think it is 4^5+3*2

I believe it is 4 with an exponent of 5 plus 2 times 3

I think it is 4^5+2*3

4^5+2 x 3

4^5+2×3=1030

4^5+2*3

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

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

3^2+4*5

I don’t understand it also as my reflection it it was easy

4^5+2*3

5^4 + 4*3

4^5+2*3

4^5+3*2

4^5+2*3

My answer that I got was 4^5+2*3.

4^5+3*2

4 to the 5th power +3 X 2=2054

i was going to guess 5^4=3×2

4*5+3×2

5*4+2×3

4^5+3×2

4^5+3×2

4^5+2×3

5^4+3•2

4^5+3•2

4^5+3*2

My answer is 4^5+2×3

I got 4^5+2*3

I got 4^5+3*2

My answer was 4^5+2*3

My answer 4^5+3*2

My answer is 4^5+2*3=26

4^5+2*3=1030

4^5+2×3

Yes that was what i got too.

5/4+2×3

my answer was 4^5+2*3

4^5+3*2

I did (4^5*3)+2

The answer to mine was 3074

4^5+3*2= 1030

1024+6=1030

4^5+2*3or4^5+3*2
