# An entertaining challenge

I ran across this challenge last night in a youtube video.

The challenge is to make each of these true. The rules are 1) You cannot draw numbers and 2) To get to 6, you can only use mathematical symbols that don't include a number (ex. no squaring, cubing and cube rooting). You can add, subtract, multiply, divide or use whatever other function you like as long as it's within the parameters. I've included the easiest one as an example.

0 0 0 = 6
1 1 1 = 6
2 2 2 = 6
3 3 3 = 6
4 4 4 = 6
5 5 5 = 6
6 + 6 - 6 = 6
7 7 7 = 6
8 8 8 = 6
9 9 9 = 6

Good luck!

Ya, I was able to get seven of them. Three of them are very tough though.

I'm going to be lazy and post just one.

9 + 9 + 9 >= 6

OK, I tried to take a nap but this one bothered me for a little bit, so I thought about it and:

( 0! + 0! + 0! )! = 6

I don't think I'll lose sleep over the rest.

Nicely done! 8 is the hardest if you want to challenge yourself a bit further. If you got all the rest it shouldn't be too hard for you though.

Yeah, I can't get this little thing out of my head just yet. I haven't figured out the 8s and 9s yet, but I'll give it some thought and see what I come up with.

ETA - OK, figured out 9s. Only 8s to go.
