If not find a new operation on 12 that yields a result of 2. Once you find an operation that yields 2 from 12 and 1 from 6 try this operation on 6. Do you get 1? Continue until you find an operation that forks in all 4 cases. Once you find an operation that if applied to the items in the left column yields the items in the right column you have found a function that works. Penny
