You are allowed to use any mathematical operator including exponents and factorials. Scroll down for my five ways. I had to get creative for the last one, and I must admit to spending a good part of my evening on it!

1. 5 x 5 x (5 – 5/5)

2. 5 x (5 + 5 + 5 + 5)

3. 5 x 5 x 5 – 5 x 5

4. (5 + 5) ^ ((5+5)/5)

5. 5! – (5 + 5 + 5 + 5)

If you found any other ways, please please please submit below!

Dont understand

5! – (5 + 5 + 5 + 5)

! is an operator which multiplies a number by all its preceding integers. Thus 5! = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120.
