Nice.  I'd consider trying some randomly generated values to avoid the long
listing, but... "Whatever works."  Operations can be randomised with something
like =MID("+-/*";INT(RAND()*4+1);1), ...and so on.  However that might all be
more work than it's worth, so stick to the pedetermined listing.

In simpler terms [that I can understand], if looking simply for a summation to
24, one can randomly generate three values and ascertain the fourth by
subtraction from 24.  Different random ranges can be used for each of the first
three to avoid exceeding 24, yet getting an integer result for the fourth ....
as I said, a lot of work perhaps for little consequence.  A pretty problem.

David.
