Create the number 24 using only these numbers once each: 3, 3, 7, 7. You may use only the rules of addition, multiplication and division.

I dont see a problem with 7*(3+3/7). I used two 3's, two 7's, addition, multiplication, and division to create 24 as the problem stated. The only thing that could possibly be wrong is the use of (). If that is a problem, I can use postfix form: '7*(3+3/7)' changes to '3 7 / 3 + 7 *'
