An equation using the numbers 2,4,6 and 8 to get the answer to be nine. You may use multiplication, division, subtraction, addition, and parenthesis. im so stumped.

asked by Natalie
  1. Can you use exponents?

    If so, how about
    (6/2)^(8/4) = 3^2 = 9 ?

    If not, try this:
    8 + [6/(2+4)] = 9
