Thanks
Louise

    5+5=10 x5 = 50 / 5 = 10-5 = 5

    Did I misread the question I thought you had to get to the answer of 1 not 5

    Hello Jan

    I did the same as you but the opposite way round 5-5 + 5/5 = 1 however this has not used all the operators. I can use all operators and achieve 1, but end up using 5 5s!

    I read the question the same way as Jo in the first instance and tried to use all the operators - but you don;t have to.

    *whispers*the answer is printed up the side of the page in the magazine....

    shows it wasn't just me that thought you had to use all of the operators - my fiancee beat me to the answer first - so ashamed :blush:

    Sorry, you're right it is 1 and not 5.

    Answer up side of page, so it is!!

    I do think the question was unfairly worded by saying don't use the operators more than once. I did read it believing all operators must be used. It's really easy now!!!

    Thanks for your replies everyone!

    5 / 5 + 5 - 5 = 1
