2012 Equal Expressions (Posted on 2012-07-15) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Use the indicated digits along with the six symbols: parantheses, exponentiation, division, multiplication, addition and subtraction, that is: (), ^, ÷, *, + and to make an expression equal to 2012 in each of the following.

No digit can be used more that once. The digits corresponding to a given problem can be used in any order. A given symbol can be used more than once and, using less than six distinct symbols is allowed. Concatenating two or more digits is not allowed. Only standard mathematical usage is followed that is, multiplication does not take precedence over division, addition does not take precedence over multiplication, and so on.

For example, expressions like: 3 + 5*2 - 2^3 or, (123 + 456)/789 are NOT allowed. However, expressions like 3 + 5*8 - 2^4 + 9 are allowed.

Originally KS had omitted the "/" symbol.  By way of edit I inserted the code " ÷ ".  That reads as a dot above and below a vinculum.

It reads well in my FF 13.0.1.  You might consider checking your Character Encoding setting if you are using FF.
