    Default Number puzzle: Can you get 24 from these numbers?

    2, 7, 7, 10Combine these four numbers in any order using only parentheses and +, -, x, and / to get the numbers 20-25. The real challenge is getting 24.For example, 19 = 10*2 - (7/7).Have fun.Yep, there is an answer. And can you only use those 4 operations. You can't use exponents and factorials, so [(10/2)-(7/7)]! = 24 is not valid.Hint: The first step is to divide.

    Hey anuja check your math. Your equation would make the answer 0. 0 isn't an option anyway. (10-7)x7+2 gets you 23 though
