 Zero to a Hundred in 1996 (Posted on 2002-08-15)
Using the digits in 1996 and any operations (but not mathematical constants), try to write equations that have the numbers from 0 to 100 as the answer.

For example with 1995:

• 0 = 1*(9-9)*5
• 2 = (19-9)/5
etc.

Provide as many as you can. Digits 1,9,9 and 6 do not have to appear in order. (But each digit has to be used - 1 and 6 once, 9 twice.)

This is more of a game than a puzzle

The greatest integer function is equivalent to the floor function. See http://primes.utm.edu/glossary/page.php/FloorFunction.html

(I could have used the ceiling function, too, but I don't know of a good way to represent it in the regular character set)
