## 1-10 With Four Three's## ActivitiesThe number 12 can be very easily expressed with four three's: Now think of the ways to get the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. ## Solution1 = 33/33 (these are also other ways); 2 = 3/3 + 3/3; 3 = (3 + 3 + 3)/3; 4 = (3 x 3 + 3)/3; 6 = (3 + 3) x 3/3. We've given the solutions through six only. Work out the remaining ones for yourselves. The above solutions, too, may be represented with other combinations of three's.
