    Alright guys!

    First one to find this one gets $5 via PayPal

    5 ? 5 ? 5 ? 5 = 30

    (By using only DMAS (division , multiplication , addition, subtraction) the result must be 30)

    5 / 5 = 1

    1 + 5 = 6

    6 x 5 = 30

    Send paypal to :

    I went there ExtraWinner to pay and I got this:

    This recipient does not accept payments from non-U.S. PayPal accounts.

    Any other organization which accepts money from worldwide?

    You are welcome ExtraWinner but the link you gave me requires a credit card which I dont have atm

    I went to RedCross.org and I clicked on "Donate" but a white page comes up

    How ironic, when someone wants to donate money, he doesn't know where to send it :)

    Direct Relief International might work.

    EDIT: Fiverr facebook invites will make any of those sites over $5.

    I actually donated at ServingOurWorld.org

    Just thinking about it, $5 wouldn't hurt any of us but what most of us dont understand is the fact that half the population of the world lives under $1 per day so $5 can feed like a a family

    Do good and good will follow!

    Cool man. Sorry for all the problem, it would be easier to send just $5 to my paypal, I just think, that this can feed a kid, and as we know - kids are innocent and they have to pay the biggest price for their parents mistakes - so we could help them.

    Good Work :top:

    Hey that's pretty cool of you guys to donate a few bucks to a charity.

    If you take into consideration the mathmatical order of operations the answer given isn't actually correct. If you replace the question marks with the operators given then it will result in a different answer.
    5 / 5 + 5 * 5 = 26
    which should be: 5 ? 5 ? 5 ? 5 = 30

    The only way it works the way ExtraWinner showed is if you also include parenthesis.
    ( 5 / 5 + 5 ) * 5 = 30
    which would be: ? 5 ? 5 ? 5 ? ? 5 = 30
    or
    5 ( 5 / 5 + 5 ) = 30
    which would be: 5 ? 5 ? 5 ? 5 ? = 30

    ExtraWinner's answer works, but only if you ignore the mathmatical order of operations. If each ? in the puzzle represents only a single symbol then the answer must be different. If not then it's a poorly constructed puzzle. :cool:

    GreyWolf is correct, I was about to post the same thing.

    The puzzle is just poorly constructed.

    I guess OP saw this puzzle at CallTV or something like that where the answer can be almost anything.

    Very cool winner, even though it's only $5.
