    An old one - It is possible to make sums using only four 4s and standard mathematical symbols which add up to all the numbers between 1 and 100.
    To get you started ...
    (4+4)/(4+4)=1
    (4x4)/(4+4)=2

    The rest (one at a time please, in order) would be nice ...

    and

    4^(4-4)*4 = 4

    Nevermind I don't belive 44 is allowed

    (4(squared)-4)-(4/4)=11

    I'm going to go outn a limb here and say

    4+4+4= 12
