### Maths Operator Riddle

Maths Operator Riddle - 28 December

Can you get a sum of 1000 using sixteen 4s and only an addition operator

1. 444 + 444 + 44 + 44 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 1000

2. I thought we can use the + sign only once...

3. 444 +
444
44
44
4
4
4
4
4
4

1. In such way I can make the sum of 1000, without using any plus sign.

4. 444+444+44+44+4+4+4+4+4+4

5. 444 + 444 + 44 + 44 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 = 1000

6. You can do it because you can do

4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+4+936 which equals 1000

You can do this because the question does not state that you cannot use numbers other than 4, so I was able to use the number 936.

7. First of all I want to say fantastic blog!
I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!
