The Power of 6 sixes in Generating Numbers

I continued to do arithmetic with my father, passing proudly through fractions to decimals. I eventually arrived at the point where so many cows ate so much grass, and tanks filled with water in so many hours I found it quite enthralling.


Welcome to the blog Math1089 – Mathematics for All.

Glad you came by. I wanted to let you know I appreciate your spending time here at the blog very much. I do appreciate your taking time out of your busy schedule to check out Math1089!

Whole numbers include the natural numbers and zero (0). Common mathematical operations include addition (+), subtraction (), multiplication (×), division (÷), exponentiation (ax), square root (√), factorial (!) etc. There is a famous mathematics problem in which we are allowed to use 6 sixes and mathematical operations to generate various whole numbers.

In this blogpost, we will show the way to generate whole numbers up to 20 using 6 sixes. But we can generate other numbers also (a routine task left for you). Moreover, we have considered a few ways to represent a particular number, so the list is not exhaustive. If you came across any other way(s) to represent a number, not listed here, please do get back to us.

Your suggestions are eagerly and respectfully welcome! See you soon with a new mathematics blog that you and I call Math1089 – Mathematics for All!“.


  1. After exploring a few of the articles on your web page, I honestly appreciate your way of writing a blog. I bookmarked it to my bookmark website list and will be checking back soon. Please check out my web site too and let me know what you think.
