is this even possible? after bashing my head against it for a while, ran a simulation in Excel - no permutation of numbers and operators actually produces a 24... (parentheses simulated by ignoring order of operations and simply ordering the numbers)

A lot of people have done this. I suppose, this is easier when you use only your head ;)

"obtain AND expression that evaluates to 24." Is this a typographical error and should say "obtain AN expression..."; or is it correct as it stands?
