When done, try this one:

Use eight 8's to get 1,000. Add, subtract, multiply, divide as you want to.

An example, although with wrong answer:

8*88-8+88+8-8 = 784

Eight 8's used but the answer is wrong. You need to get 1,000.

I've put the text in white so it doesn't spoil it for the others Nice puzzle! I spent ages trying to make 125 so I could just multiply it by 8, until I realised you were allowed to use the 8s to form more than single digit numbers.


888+88+8+8+8=1000
