# Kuma 217

Here’s Kuma 217. I’ve been feeling so lethargic recently… dang finals… one more to go for me. Well, here’s a countdown question, since some of you are math nerds. Except this time, I’m just gonna pick random numbers using Google.

Target: 329
Numbers: 100, 75, 7, 4, 3, 2

Same rules as last time.

Thinking again, is:
4/2=2 a valid operation?
If it is:
100-75=25
4/2=2
25×2=50
50-3=47
47×7=329

And everything is used

Is also a solution

(75*3)+100+4=329

7, 3, 2 can be used as 7-(3*2)=1

329*1=329

Oops! Just forget that 3 is used already.

So, just leave 7 and 2 where they are.

I found 84 ways to calculate 329 without use of parenthesis, ranging from using 4 numbers to all 6.

You have a lot of doubles where it’s just the order of the additions or multiplication (like 3*75 and 75*3 being treated as different solutions).
There are a decent amount of uniques in there though, well done.
