You have the numbers 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, 91. What is the closest integer you can get to 200, if you must use all 6 numbers and may use only + - / x ? Concatenation is allowed.


Closest I get until now is 202 using concatenation.
Without I get 192 as closest.

192 is closest with only +, -, and no concatenation.

81*(91-71)/(61-51)+41=203

I'm still working in this (focusing on no concatenation)

Are grouping symbols allowed?

(91-81+71-61)(51-41) = 200
