Solve my t-shirt

This week’s problem of the week was found…at a t-shirt shop? Math really is everywhere.


  1. No parentheses are needed – my solution has only a multiplication and two subtractions, no unseemly divisions!

  2. Riley recanted on the above when he realized he didn’t use the 8. I tried to do it without the 8 using just a multiply and two subtractions but, so far, haven’t succeeded.

  3. I found two ways to make seventeen. I did not however find sixteen. And I used all of the numbers.
