 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

Heh. I really don't have a problem with the floor function, etc., but I spent quite a bit of my lunchbreak finding non-exotic solutions to most about everything - I was just hoping ones could be found for them all - if they couldn't, well, ah well - not really a problem - it would still have been a valid solution - just not a pretty one. ;-)
