Find an expression that equals 24 using the digits 1, 4, 5, and 6.
- Each digit must be used exactly once.
- You must use only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
- Digits may not be concatenated (one may not put 1 and 4 together to make 14).
- Parentheses (brackets) are allowed.
Find at least two solutions!

You mean well done, SilverKnight.
This is a very interesting problem and requires just the right amount of creativity for the solution.
Unless you mean well dine for beating mr. programmer to the solution. Then, yes: well done, me! ;-)
just kidding Charlie
