-0! + 1234 - 5*6*7 - 8 + (√9)! = 1021

0! + 12 + (3! + 4)/(-.5 + .6)/(-.7 + .8) + 9 = 1022

(9 + 8 - 7 - 6)^5 - 4 + 3 - 2 + 1 - 0 = 1022

0 - 1 - 2 - 3 + T(45) - 6 + 7 - 8 + 9 = 1031

F(9 + 8 - 7 + 6) + 54 - 3^2 - 1 + 0 = 1031

T(45) = 45th Triangular number = 1035
F(16) = 16th Fibonacci number = 987

Why not take the easy way out?

$$\displaystyle 0! - 1 - 2 - 3 + T(45) - 6 + 7 - 8 + 9 = 1032$$

$$\displaystyle F(9 + 8 - 7 + 6) + 54 - 3^2 - 1 + 0! = 1032$$

In the corner for 0minutes, again!

Moderator Edit: Denis lends Jomo a hand:

0 - 1 + 234 + 5 + 6 + 789 = 1033

987 + 6 - 5 + 43 + 2 + 1*0 = 1033

Sure, sure, but only if you go to the corner for 1033 minutes - you forgot to post a solution for 1033! Here's mine for 1034. I tried something a bit unorthodox, and I hope it's allowed:

$$\displaystyle \int\limits_{0}^{1} 234 \: \text{dx} + 5 + 6 + 789 = 1034$$

$$\displaystyle 98 \cdot 7 + 6 \cdot 54 + 3 + 21 + 0 = 1034$$

My thoughts exactly.

$$\displaystyle f(0+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 1035$$

$$\displaystyle f(9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1+0) = 1035$$

#### ksdhart2

My thoughts exactly.

$$\displaystyle f(0+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 1035$$

$$\displaystyle f(9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1+0) = 1035$$
If $$f(x)$$ is the same as $$T(x)$$ and denotes the $$n^{th}$$ triangular number, then sure.

$$\displaystyle 0 + 1 \cdot 23 + 4 \cdot 56 + 789 = 1036$$

$$\displaystyle 987 + (6 + 5) \cdot 4 + 3 + 2 \cdot 1 + 0$$

##### Senior Member
$$\displaystyle 0! + 1 \cdot 23 + 4 \cdot 56 + 789 = 1037$$

$$\displaystyle 987 + (6 + 5) \cdot 4 + 3 + 2 \cdot 1 + 0! = 1037$$

To the corner Otis: should be t(45) , not f(45)

And you, Jomo: you needed to post a solution to 1033....bad boy....

… To the corner Otis: should be t(45) …
In post #35, function f is any function that works. (That's one of the many tricks of the trade, and you said we could use any of them.)

$$\displaystyle g(0+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9) = 1038$$

$$\displaystyle g(9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1+0) = 1038$$

Ahhh...I see...all my fault:
I meant T = Triangular number, F = Fibonacci number;
not functions as such.
HOKAY: now changing the rules:
no functions or stuff like T and F allowed!

-(0! + 1 + 2 + 3) + 4^5 - 67 + 89 = 1039

98 - 76 + 5 - 4*3 + 2^10 = 1039

Edit: Fixed Typo

Excuse me Sir Denise, but -(0! + 2 + 2 + 3) + 4^5 - 67 + 89 = 1038 NOT 1039. Go to the senior corner!

Let f(x) =1040,
Then f(0*1 +23-4*5+6789=1040
Hmm, maybe f(9-8+765-432-10) = 1040
