How to get to 6 ? Solutions …

Here is one set of solving equations: (0! + 0! + 0!)! = 6 (1 + 1 + 1)! = 6 2 + 2 + 2 = 6 √(3 * 3) + 3 = 6 √4 + √4 + √4 = 6 (5 / 5) + 5 = 6 6 – 6 + 6 = 6 7 – (7 / 7) = 6 8 – √(√(8 + 8)) = 6 √(√(9 * 9)) + √9 = 6 I must admit thta I had to look up the factorial definition again … but it is true 0! = 1 . What is zero factorial? Also see the youTube clip where I got it from. Quite...
