Also this:
280 = 8*(2*(5+8)+9) {+/ extension} And this: 288 = (8(25)*8)*9 {+/ extension} ETA: 294 = (82)*(5*8+9) {+/ extension} Last fiddled with by retina on 20190118 at 10:38

Even better:
304: 299 to 317 = 8*(2+5*8) + L4D[13 to 13]

This one solves a lot of multiples of 80:
320 = 8*2*5*(8L4D[4]) And multiples of 50: 350 = (8+2)*5*(8L4D[1]) 352: 350 to 356 = 8*2*(5+8+9) + L3D[3 to 4] Last fiddled with by henryzz on 20190121 at 12:26

Using only division:
160 = 8/(2/5/(8/(9/(9/(3/3))))) It doesn't solve anything extra.

Some more divisions
1440 = 8/(2/5/8/(9/(9/3/3))) 12960 = 8/(2/5/8/9/(9/(3/3))) 116640 = 8/(2/5/8/9/9/3/3)

I am struggling to find results around this sort of size.
358 = 8+2+5*8+9*(9+3)*3

A whole bunch of 357s
357 = 82+5*8*9(9(33))
357 = 82+5*8*9(9+3)+3 357 = 82+5*8*9(9+33) 357 = 82+5*8*9(93)3 357 = 82+5*8*9(93+3) 357 = 82+5*8*99*3/3 357 = 82+5*8*99/(3/3) 357 = 82+5*8*99/3*3 So many ways to generate 9 with those last three digits.

How didn't I spot that trivial 5*8*9=360?
