Whats is the greatest number that can be achieved using these three numbers

1, 2, 3

I am almost certain a number greater than 6 can be achieved, I'm thinking the square root divided by one of the numbers, but cant work it out

3+1 x 2
#2
1+3x2=8
#3
3/(1/(2^2)) = 12

2/(1/(3^2)) = 18
#4
321 Lol!
#5

3+1 x 2

= 8

(2+1) x 3 = 9.

No idea if anything over that though.

3+1 x 2

+1 :thumbsup:

3/(sqrt(1/2)) = 12

Is that 3 divided by (1 divided by 2 sqrt)
#10
2 divided by the square root of 1/3 =18?
#11
3 to the power of 2 +1?

2+1x3=9

Thanks babes x

2 divided by the square root of 1/3 =18?

Thats 2 sums on one number, if you get what I mean.

You can have 1 divided by 3 to get 1/3 and then squareroot the result, you are only allowed one sum per number, else I could just keep adding 3 to 3 until I feel like I want to stop

3 to the power of 2 +1?

thats 10
#15
loll1es
thats 10

thus a greater number then 6.
#16
3 ^ (2+1) = 27 :)
#17

yeah but there are already results up to 18 (might not be correct though)
#18
3 ^ (2+1) = 27 :)

Yep, that's the best you can get I think
#19
2+1 = 3
3^3
= 27
#20
3 ^ (2+1) = 27 :)

+1

not 27+1 lol but 27 is the highest I believe.
#21

Sorry couldnt see the others when i typed it.

3 ^ (2+1) = 27 :)

baffledsalmon
2+1 = 3
3^3
= 27

as above...

But...2 to the power of (1+3)
#22
awoodhall2003

But...2 to the power of (1+3)

That's a mere 16 though :)
#23
baffledsalmon
2+1 = 3
3^3
= 27

what is ^ mean? :?
#24
loll1es
what is ^ mean? :?

to the power of
#25

throwing alternatives, the highest I agree with, i cant think of anything better.
loll1es

to the power of.
#26

yep.. and 27 is greater than 16 last time I checked too. Unless its a trick question... 27 is correct.
#27
I think 27 is the highest

Yeah, such as if we were allowed to use ! (factorial :)
#29
31 to the power of 2 = 961

Does this count? :thinking:
#30
ScreechMF
31 to the power of 2 = 961

Does this count? :thinking:

No
#31
If that's allowed then 21 to the power of 3=9261
#32
ScreechMF
31 to the power of 2 = 961

Does this count? :thinking:

Nope
#33
(3^(2+1))! = 10888869450418352160768000000

Quite a resounding victory I think! :p

(3^(2+1))! = 10888869450418352160768000000

Quite a resounding victory I think! :p

Think your calculator is broke, cos mine makes that 27 :lol:

Then you forgot to use the factorial button :w00t:

(3^(2+1))! = 27! = 10888869450418352160768000000
#36
! isn't permitted

Why not? :?

thats using 2 sums on one number, not permitted, sorry

Why not? :?

cos I said so, and I make the rules.....ha ha!!

Not really, I make one sumation of 1 and 2, then the product of the result with 3, and then the factorial of the product.

No different to summing 1 and 2, and then raising the result to the power 3.
