Assume you are using a basic calculator and press the numbers in the order shown, replacing each question mark with a mathematical sign.
Plus, minus, multiply and divide can each be used once only.
How many possible ways are there to score 11?

8 ? 3 ? 4 ? 5 ? 7 = 11

Subject: February 2012 Prize Puzzle - Mensa Website Competition

In case anybody wants to try it themselves I have blanked out my answer - If you click and hold your mouse button down on the words "Suggested Answer" below then drag your mouse down the page the answer will be revealed.

8 – 3 x 4 / 5 + 7 = 11 and 8 x 3 – 4 / 5 + 7 = 11

Congratulations to last month's winners: K Louise from Milton Keynes and K Heywood from Lincolnshire. The correct answer was: 97.
