Once kids learn how to count, the next logical step is learning how to add. Youngsters have a built-in knack for this, quite often, as they (like the rest of us) want to accumulate as much as possible. "It's all about the toys," eh?

Using only the same digit eight times and
some combination of addition (plus signs),
come up with an equation that equals 1,000.

HERE is the answer.


888 + 8 + 8 + 8 + 88 = 1,000
