Four Goodness Sake

Stage: 2 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3 Challenge Level:3


Write down the number $4$, four times.
Put operation symbols between them so that you have a calculation.
So you might think of writing $4 \times 4 \times 4 - 4 = 60$

BUT use operations so that the answer is $12$

Now, can you redo this so that you get $15$, $16$ and $17$ for your answers?

Need more of a challenge? Try getting answers all the way from $0$ through to $10$.
