"You can make 904 with the same ingredients..." That's kind of how the numbers game works, Rachel. Also, did anyone find it kind of strange that she used the 4 without showing the 6 - 2 step?
Alternate solution: (10 x 10 x 9) + 6 - 2

John made a right pig's ear of the third numbers, don't know why he didn't see the rather easier 9 x 5 x 10 + 8 + 7 - 1.

Rachel appears to be wearing an ice lolly today.
