24 Game

The 24 game http://www.24game.com/ is a mathematical game in which the objective is to determine a way to manipulate four numbers using mathematical operations so that the end result is 24.

For example the numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 can be manipulated 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 = 24. Come up with another way of manipulating the numbers to produce 24.

Another example is the numbers 2, 6, 8, 24. The numbers could be manipulated 24/8 x (6 + 2) because by order of operations 6 + 2 = 8 and 24/8=3.
This will produce 3 x 8 = 24.
