Hello, my name is Michael and I am in elementary school .. We have a game we play in math class called 24 game. In it each card has 4 numbers on it. Each number can only be used once, in any order, using multiplication, subtraction, division, or addition. We are stuck on one and wondered if you could help. The four numbers are 10-9-16-4. And they must equal 24. Any clues?
