708 - 634 - 29 + 15

This pandigital expression (presence of all digits
from 0 -> 9, once and only once) is = 60 ... and
needs 60 letters to be written in french :

Sept cent huit.............= 12
moins........................= 5
six cent trente-quatre = 19
moins........................= 5
vingt-neuf..................= 9
plus...........................= 4
quinze........................= 6
.............................-----------
....................................60

(published today by P. Coilland on fr.rec.jeux.enigmes)
60 seems to be a minimum in french: what about in your
own language: English, german, Dutch, Swedish, etc.

(use only numbers, "plus" and "minus" -- no parenthesis,
no multiplication or division signs, etc.)

57 seems like a reasonable lower bound, but I haven't gotten there. Here's 59:
Code:65 + 47 + 39 - 82 - 10 = 59

sixty-five 9
plus 4
forty-seven 10
plus 4
thirty-nine 10
minus 5
eighty-two 9
minus 5
ten 3
--
59

oh that...well I used your numbers, I got you wrong Wink
I suppose you ask sum where number of letters is same as final sum?
got you wrong in that case, silly me (smashing my head).
