I left class today with a riddle. Find a set of numbers (does not specify what type) that add to 25, but must multiply to a number as high as possible. For example, 10+10+5 = 25, 10*10*5 = 500.
I started with 5+5+5+5+5 (5^5 = 3125) but I realized I can break up these numbers more. It ended up with 2.7182 adding to itself 9.1969 times, which resulted in a product of 9866.4344
I also realized that it should be a number added and multiplied by itself. What is this number? Or is it a set of different numbers?
