Puzzle of the year 2007: find phrases that generate each number i.100 , making no use of

  • digits other than 2 0 0 7 in sequence
  •  _ and __ and _. as numbers
  • letters in numeric constants (e.g. >. 200r7 for 29 is prohibited)
  • literal strings

  • For 14 why not use 2 * 007? Same for 9. It's same word count but fewer chars. -- Oleg Kobchenko <<DateTime(2006-12-22T05:10:21Z)>>
