Krypto and 24

As a kid, I was never a fan gambling away my hard-earned allowance. Heck, even playing poker with M&M’s meant that maybe — just maybe — I’ll walk away with less chocolate than I came to the table with, and that was an anxiety worth not experiencing. Fortunately, I’ve since come to my senses, but I’ll never forget the game my risk-averse friends and I would play when we came across a deck of playing cards.

While most kids reached in their pockets for coins to ante up, we’d pulled the face and joker cards out of the deck, shuffle the rest, and deal out six cards, face-up, in the middle of the table with one of the cards a few inches from the rest.
Ask three DBAs a question, and you’ll get four different answers.

reminds me of my teaser a couple of years back


use these four numbers 3,4,5,6
and only these symbols (/ + - * ) you can use each number and symbol only once

make the number 28 out of it, of course you need parentheses
