Riddle: Lucky 7
Submitted by: Eddie Cohen
Pamela was planning a party at her house at 100 Clarence Ave. In a big storm just before the party, the two zeros in her address that were attached to the front of the house were lost. At the store, Pamela only found four address markers – all of which were 7s. Using addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, how can Pamela represent her address (100) using the 1 that was still attached to her house and the four 7s?
Solution: 177-77 or (7+7) x (7+(1/7))
