Below are three groups of three numbers each. Combine the numbers in each group using the standard binary operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and exponentiation) so that each group yields the same number.
- 3, 15, 18
- 10, 13, 36
- 24, 27, 39
For an example, see the first problem.
(In reply to re: Attempt at a computer solution -- results
There was also the possibility of exponentiation. Maybe that would allow you to get all three solutions?
