Quandaries
and Queries 

Hi! My name is Claudio. I have a problem that I do not know how to solve it. It says: Find a thousand natural numbers such that their sum equals their product. Can you help me?. Thanks 

Hi Claudio, When I first read your question my immediate thought was that a thousand is too big, I should start with something smaller.
This is easy since 2 2 = 2 + 2.
Try some small numbers and see if you can solve this. Now try four natural numbers and see if you can detect a pattern. One thing to keep in mind is that you may want to repeat the same natural number more than once like I did with the 2 above. Penny
