Okay here is how it goes u have to create 30 way to find the answer only using the number 1,2,3,4 using p.e.m.d.a.s for ex:

1. (4-3) divide (2-1) = 1 so say ur doing number one ur answer has to be one

ex:

2. (3x2)1-4=2

also u can use a number as a exponent
and the numbers 1,2,3,4 can not be repeated more than once in the problem ex:

13.42x1-3=13
