What is $\pi(3)$? It's 2 in your case.. but any reference?

I will update my question to include negative numbers as well.. why not?

@JonasMeyer Any number as long as the expression uses only that number as is. For n=14 the number a=141414 also allowed..

What's your n and k?

@LieRyan if you can come up with these answers.. would be nice :)

Since there are multiple solutions.. I think it would be nicer to keep the cooler one and drop the other one :) Square roots are more impressive :)

I think you can use another answer for the 5s.. Just to keep one answer per pair..

@AméricoTavares Yes, thanks for that.. I updated my question.. sorry :(

Without rounding as long as it's valid.

@Phira agree.. that solves it for n = 2 then :) I want to see it also with a different pair of numbers.. not only the extreme ones :)

Can someone edit the question and use LaTeX for the expressions and = 1, 2, 3, etc ;)

Well.. the problem is that you're using the number 2 not exactly k times to produce each number, as described in the problem.

@Phira sure.. whatever you can imagine.. as long as the result is a natural number.. and we can see the number n written k times :) it can also be like: (99 / 99 + 9) for n = 9 and k = 5 for the number 10

@Thomas agree.. the guy who was copying from the paper did a mistake before making it a clock ;)

@Phira It's not wrong at 5 if you see it like: (sqrt(9))! - 9/9 = 5

@AméricoTavares true... :) Didn't notice it.. but the problem remains the same :) Because here you could use the .9 repeating (which is the same with: 1 + 1 - 1) like in the number 7..
