# Is this possible????????Watch

Rules:
1) You cannot draw a number
2) To get to 6, all you can use are mathematical symbols - as long as they don't include a number.

You need to make 6 with only three 11's and the mathematical symbols, i have got up to 11 and then 11 got me stuck.

define an operation theta such that theta(n)=6 for all n
then take theta(11+11+11)

or take 11+11+11= 3+3+3=9 in binary

if you're restricting yourself to indices, multiplication, addition, division and subtraction i don't think it's possible

Is it like a teaser question? 11,11,11. 11 is 1 & 1.
1+1+1+1+1+1 = 6
