May 26th, 2006: While we're still getting some fancier stuff ready behind the scenes, I thought this would be a good place to put some neo-classic puzzles. Hope you like this one:
Using the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8 (in any order), make a mathematical expression that equals 24. You can use only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (and parentheses), but in any order you wish. Note that you have to use all four numbers; otherwise 3 times 8 would be valid -- and that wouldn't be much of a puzzle, would it?
