This is an ongoing riddle to see how far we can get as a group.

Similar to “Just One” we try and figure out how to use six 6’s to equal 1 (O.K. that’s been solved) then 2, then 3, then 4, etc. to see how far we can get.

We are to come up with answers in sequence (2, 3, 4, 5, etc.) and the same person is not allowed to produce two answers in a row. So if I come up with the solution for 2. I must wait until someone else posts a solution for six 6’s equaling 3 before I provide a solution for six sixes equaling 7. Etc.

How high can we get 6 sixes to go?

Thank you Brent for your great submission.

We will keep this one unsolved until the great computer tells us there is no greater answer, yet 42 is the answer to everything.

I’ll start with 2:

6 – (6 + 6 + 6 + 6) / 6 = 2

(6+6+6+6-6)/6=3

66 / 6 – 6 / 6 – 6 = 4

66/6 – 6 – 6 + 6 = 5

66 / 6 + 6 / 6 – 6 = 6

6 + 6/6 + 6 x (6 – 6) = 7

(6+6)/6 + 6 + 6 – 6 = 8

6 + 6 – (6 + 6 + 6) / 6 = 9

(6+6+6+6)/6 + 6 = 10

Awesome, up to 10.

Keep it going!

(6+6+6)-(6/6)-6=11

6+6-(6+6)/(6+6)=11

6+6+6+6-6-6 = 12

6+6+((6+6)/(6+6))= 13

6 + 6 + 6/6 + 6/6 = 14

(6+6+6)/6 + 6 + 6 = 15

6 + 6 + 6 – (6 + 6) / 6 = 16

66 / 6 + 6 + 6 – 6 = 17

66/6 + 6 + 6/6 = 18

6 x 6 – 66 / 6 – 6 = 19

6+6+6+(6+6)/6=20

6/.6 + 6/.6 + 6/6 = 21

66/6 + 66/6 = 22

6×6-6-6-6/6=23

6+6+6+6+6/6-6/6=24

oops. 6+6+6+6+6-6=24

((6×6)-6)/((6+6)/6)=15

OR:

6+6+6+6+(6/6)=15

(6×6)-6-6+6/6=25

6×6 – 6/.6 – 6 + 6 = 26

(6 + 6)/.6 + 6 + 6 – 6 = 26

6+6+6+(6+6)/6 = 20

6+6/6 = 7 (you don’t need brackets Because of bidmas

Then u add the 20 and the 7 its not hard if you can make

All numbers up to ten then you can make all numbers.

66/6 + 66/6 + 6 = 28

(6×6-6)-6/6 = 29

6×6-6 = 30

6×6-(6-6/6) = 31

6×6-(66/6-6/6-6) =32

(6+6+6+6)/6 + 6×6-6 = 33

OR

66/6 + 66/6 + 66/6 = 33

(6×6-6/6)-6/6 = 34

6×6-6/6 = 35

6×6 = 36

6×6+6/6 =37

6×6+6/6+6/6 = 38

(6+6+6+6)/6+6×6 = 39

Jack, thank you for all of your answers. Some of them are breaking the six sixes rule. Each answer must use only six 6’s.

We are missing 27. 36 should be 66-66+6×6 for example.

Oh sorry i thought using only sixes you meant. Sorry

The biggest number that can be made is

66666 to the power of 6

Even my scientific calculator can’t make a whole number out of it

it says 8.778622784×10^28

in other words ERROR

36 could also be

6×6-6×6+6×6

:-)

(May not count since I did 26, but Brent did 26 also, so I’m not ‘producing two answers in a row’)

6×6 – 6/.6 + 6/6 = 27
