Is anybody familiar with Hectoc (http://hectoc.org) and has any strategies to share? The game’s been around a few years already but it seems we don’t have anything here on the forum yet…
Rules: Six digits from 1 to 9 are given. The target is always 100. All six digits must be used in the order given, along with operators +,-,*,/,(,) and ^. Single digits can be combined into larger numbers.
123456 -> 1+(2+3+4)*(5+6) = 100
987654 -> 98+7-6+5-4 = 100
271127 -> 2^7-(1+1+2)*7 = 100
(^ means power, the first number is the base and the second number is the exponent).
