Zero to a Hundred in 1996 (Posted on 2002-08-15) Difficulty: 3 of 5
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

    To avoid all the extra typing here, I will refer you to Nick Reed's excelent solutions for the problem:
  • Part 1, and
  • Part 2.

    Nick missed a couple of the numbers in his posts, but you can find the solutions to those last ones by going through the comments.
