Well done Philip once again! The conundrum today was the fastest I have ever buzzed in (One second) playing along and it was certainly not fast enough for me to beat him in that round today, coupled with him beating me with VERSIONAL when I had AILERONS in R5 and the following round with a Boeing target (If you get what I mean...) after I so stupidly veered off by doing (5 x 4) + 3 instead of his method after getting 720 the exact same way!

1st Numbers alternative if you want to use up all six numbers: 25 x (100 ÷ 50) x 4 x (10 ÷ 5)

Of course, the *correct* way to do it is ((10 x 8) + 3) x 9

Which Mark already said, stop robbing.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Both of them used too many brackets, so I think I can steal this one for myself.

It's (10x8+3)x9.

You're welcome.

They used superfluous brackets, but not too many. Too many suggests it's functionally incorrect.
