The five 3īs (Posted on 2008-07-07) Difficulty: 2 of 5
This is a real story. A long long time ago, based on the "Four fours" problem, I wondered if I could do the same using exactly five 3īs, the restrictions a bit tighter: I could use only the 4 basic math operations, exponentiation, factorial, and all parentheses I may need. Besides, I didnīt disallow me to join two "3īs" to make "33".

Using this, and only this, I succeeded in writing expressions for all integers from 0 to 100.

To narrow your work, since a great number of integers can be easily obtained, can you find expressions for 47, 50, 56, 58, 64, 70, 71, 73, 74, 76, 77, 85, 88, 94, and 95?
