### Create Twenty-Four

Create the number 24 using (all of) 1, 3, 4, and 6. You may add, subtract, multiply, and divide. Parentheses are free. You must use each digit only once. Note that you may not "glue" digits together. (14 - 6) * 3 is not a solution. 13 * 4 * 6 is not a solution either (powers not allowed).

1. 6/(1-(3/4)) = 24

2. So my friend thinks this is a trick question.

This is what he emailed to me.. and I like his way of thinking.

'the wording CREATE the number 24 suggest making a picture so (6-4)(1+3) which in picture terms is 24'

you can calculate the the number 24 mathmatically if you turn 6 upside down and get 9???? ((9 x 3)-4)+1 = 24

3. (6!/4!) - (3!/1!)
