Use 2 numbers in Operation Six

I realize most people do not look at the help, or read examples, or do anything before trying to play Operation Six.

You do not have to use all 6 numbers in Operation Six!!!!  Try using two of the numbers.  Heck, one will work.  Using all six is really hard to do, but using less is still ok.

I probably have to add a tutorial that is mandatory, so more people understand what to do.

Games: Operation Six

There was a game called "Four-Fours" where you have to make every number 1-100 using only four 4's and the operations.  It was fun, and I wanted a game similar but easier for normal people to do.

Enter "Operation Six".  Use six randomly generated numbers to get the numbers 1-30.  You can use less than all 6, but the ultimate goal is to use all six.  I am pretty sure there is a formula that says this is always possible, but I have to double check.

Coming soon for iPhone, then iPad.  iPhone has 30 levels, iPad has 60.
The answer for he shot below:
6-6x3+9-4-1 (order of operations does not apply here.  Go left to right)

Which country does math better, US or Germany?

My current rental car is a Chevy, and this is what I noticed.

My battery gauge is split into 8 equal segments, with the lowest being 8, the highest being 18.  How many volts is each segment worth?

My gas gauge has 8 equal segments, and my tank is 20 gallons, how many gallons is each 1/8th of the gauge worth?

At home:
My VW has a gas gauge split into 16 segments, and I have a 16 gallon tank.  How many gallons is each section worth?

My temperature gauge ranges from 120 to 320, split into 10 segments.  How much is each section worth?

I think Europeans pay attention more.

Even cooler QR Code

Even cooler QR code.  Using a QR generator like THIS, you can set the error correction level so high as to be able to distort up to 30% of it, and the best way of distorting that 30% is with some cool picture or logo.
