    Maths problem!?!?

    Ok - so this can be done - but I can't do it.

    You have the numbers 1 4 5 8 and must use them to result in the total of 150.
    You must use each number, but only once. You can square or cube the numbers.

    This is a first year high school question!!!


    Anyone able to do it?

    5 cubed + 4 squared + 8 + 1

    (5 cubed) + (4 squared) +1 + 8

    125 + 16 +1 + 8

    8+4+12
    12 squared = 144

    144+5+1=150
