Maths Week: Your Wednesday puzzle

Figure it out.

IT’S MATHS WEEK, and as is our annual tradition here, we’re setting you a puzzle a day with all answers published on the site on Sunday. 

Get puzzling!

TODAY’S Q: 

Using each of the digits 2,4,6,8 once and once only, and the common operators – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division – can you make the number 24?

It is a lot harder to get a total of 23. Can you find a way?

And for a tricky one, can you get a total of 1,000 using just eight eights (8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8) and the common operators of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division?
