# If the answer of the sum is 1000 and you can only use 88888888 how do you work this out?

Question asked by: knowitall

You just have to work out the right combination of 8's to get to 1000.

For instance you could say that 8 + 8 is 16.

16 * 8 * 8 is 1024.

8 + 8 + 8 is 24. You then take this away to get 1,000. Easy!
