SOLUTIONS: 2013 MATHEMATICS GAME

http://mathforum.org/yeargames/yeargameentrys?find=BySolutionFor&form

Got an expression for 83 using the digits in the year 2013,
standard operations, and grouping symbols? How about for 88?

Just a few hours ago, we posted all the correct solutions
submitted to the 2013 Mathematics Game; and through February,
we will continue accepting more -- including for those last two
unsolved numbers!

PoW taking place: math problem-solving moment of the week

"Reflection: I did not show my thought process as clearly as I
would have liked. So on the extra, I am going to actually show
how my mind works. Scary. I was completely lost at the
beginning of the problem, but now I understand modular
arithmetic."

- Kenna, highlighted in the Algebra PoW's Latest Solution
