Five 3's can express 37 :-
37 = 33 + 3 + 3/3.
Find another way to do it.

(3^3) + (3*3) + (3/3) = 37
Sadly, that requires six.

3.333^3 = 37.025927
That's pretty close :)

Aha I've got it!

333/3/3 = 37

How about (3! + 3!)*3+3/3...

Yeah, didn't think of that - but that works!

Another way (the 'intended' answer) is (3 * 3 * 3) + (3/3).

But your answer is just as good.

How about the simplest way? 333/(3*3)

There is also the 3 cubed shortcut.

3^3+ 33/3

333/(3*3) is a good answer too!

But 3^3 + (33/3) is 38, not 37.

Ummmm....

"Another way (the 'intended' answer) is (3 * 3 * 3) + (3/3)."

Isn't that 28?
