Ok, so you can use:

2 3 4 5 + =

You have to use each one exactly once and you have to make an equation that makes sense. Thanks for any help.

3^2 = 4 + 5

3^2 = 4 + 5

Nice, hopefully that's within the rules.

the exponent thing is misleading on the internet since you can't type it.

Of course, if you use a superscript 2 the carat (^) isn't necessary.

Yeah, I figured that out.

Trying to do to many things at once &amp; didn't read very carefully.

(i was confused too)

but, like it says above, using a superscript 2 is the same thing...

When writing it in RL you don't need the ^, just superscript the 2
