### Re: Five Fives Game

I'm fine with more functions. The main reason why I dislike the ceiling/floor functions is that you can abuse them to essentially get any number you want out of a single 5 by just using repeated square rooting and random other functions.

Also, I can't figure out 373 without using the ceiling/floor functions.

### Re: Five Fives Game

I got 373 without ceiling/floor already:

373 = (5!! + .5) x Γ5 + 5/5
373 = 15.5 x 24 + 1
373 = 372 + 1
373 = 373

Next target = 379

### Re: Five Fives Game

So what's the new rule? we can use any function except floor/ceiling?

### Re: Five Fives Game

I think we've always been able to use any function, just now I've made a list of them that's as complete as I can find infor for - we still can use floor/ceiling but maasman and I are avoiding them if possible.

379 = (5+5!!/5)!! - √5 x √5
379 = (5+3)!! - 5
379 = 384 - 5
379 = 379

### Re: Five Fives Game

383 = σ(5!) + 5! + 5!! + 5 + Π5
383 = 240 + 120 + 15 + 5 + 3
383 = 383

(having done all that bloomin research I've gotta slip some of the "new" ones in there )

Because I'm lazy:

389 = (5+5!!/5)!! + √5 x √5
389 = (5+3)!! + 5
389 = 384 + 5
389 = 389

397 = Γ5 x (5!! + (Π5 x .5)) + μ(5!!)
397 = 24 x (15 + (3 x .5)) + 1
397 = 24 x 16.5 + 1
397 = 396 + 1
397 = 397

Too easy to cheat this one

421 = 5# x 5!! - 5# + 5/5
421 = 30 x 15 - 30 + 1
421 = 450 - 29
421 = 421

Next target: 431

Same here

463 = 24 x (24 - 5) + 5 + 2
463 = 24 x 19 + 7

Are you stuck on the next one maasman or you just taking a breather?

Just breather.

467 = 5# x 5!! + 5!! + φ(5) - σ(5!!))
467 = 30 x 15 + 15 + 4 - 2
467 = 450 + 17

Another cheat
