Re-arrange the numbers to make sense, but you cannot use the signs, +,-,/,*. etc.

I hope that's not it, because you didn't rearrange any numbers. 😞

I hope that's not it, because * is the same thing and we can't use it. 😞

I can reaarange THE NUMBERS to read HER BENT SUM. Does this answer the problem?

I can do it with 66 = 24

2^6 = 64

you can write 2^6 with a small uppercase 6
I thought this problem might work like that, but it doesn't seem to

aha, got it

flip the 6 upside down and rearrange to give

7^2 = 49

well done - I'm guessing thats it.

but if you can use the function '^' then why not 'x' ???

You physically move the 2 up to where is in 7 squared. (If you can turn the 6 around to a 9, you can do this.)

I can't do it here, but 7^2 can be represented with an uppercase 2.

That is only a convention.
If I define superscripts to mean "multiply by" then I can use my solution.

Everything is only a convention if you want to play it like that.
