# Personally
I'd do it as (1/1)+1*(1+1+1)

# But that works out as 4
Because multiplication is done before adding. You need more brackets: ((1/1)+1)*(1+1+1).

# (1+1+1)*(1+1+1) = 9
I win.

If they allow powers, you can get 27 with

(1+1+1)^(1+1+1) = 3^3 = 3*3*3 = 9*3 = 27

# are you sure?
that looks a bit complicated for most Americans - especially if you judge it on George W. Bush's intellectual capabilities!

# Hahahaha
You legend!

*Edit*
This probably won't get noticed, but:

It's possible to reach 671 from those numbers.

(50 + 10 + 1) * (1000 / 100 + 1) = 671

# Very good!
I think a lot of people tried to get 670, some got 671 and some 668, I think. I didn't do that on purpose it was just what was on the screenshot! But thanks, glad you liked it ;)

If it was binary that could make 63... but that's a bit sad.
