When I posted, I should have said, given the numbers 5, 1, 1, and 1. So yes, there are three 1's and one 5. But the numbers can only be used once! I was trying to find a way where you could use fractions, but so far I've had no luck! Also, you're not allowed to square the numbers. You can only reach 24 through addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division.

Individually the numbers can only be used once! Say for example...(5+1)=6...6*1=6...6+1=7...In that combination, I used each individual digit once.
