FUN WITH NUMBERS


There is a way of writing 1
by using all ten digits at once:

148/296 + 35/70 = 1

And there are at least 2
ways of writing “1,000” with 8s only:

8 + 8 / 8 (8 x 8 x 8 – 8) – 8 = 1,000

8888 – 888 / 8 = 1,000

the alignment should be:
8+8+8+88+888=1000

Thanks!

I may have to correct my statement that there are four ways to write 1,000 using 8s only.
