It turns out that the answer is 6/2+8-10*5 = -39 Here's my list of combinations (note: I did NOT use parenthesis). You have a scroll a bit to find the combination that's the answer (which is in red). 6+2+8+10+5 =31 6+2+8+10-5 =21 6+2+8+10*5 =66 6+2+8+10/5 =18 6+2+8-10+5 =11 6+2+8-10-5 =1 6+2+8-10*5 =-34 6+2+8-10/5 =14 6+2+8*10+5 =93 6+2+8*10-5 =83 6+2+8*10*5 =408 6+2+8*10/5 =24 6+2+8/10+5 =13.8 6+2+8/10-5 =3.8 6+2+8/10*5 =12 6+2+8/10/5 =8.16 6+2-8+10+5 =15 6+2-8+10-5 =5 6+2-8+10*5 =50 6+2-8+10/5 =2 6+2-8-10+5 =-5 6+2-8-10-5 =-15 6+2-8-10*5 =-50 6+2-8-10/5 =-2 6+2-8*10+5 =-67 6+2-8*10-5 =-77 6+2-8*10*5 =-392 6+2-8*10/5 =-8 6+2-8/10+5 =12.2 6+2-8/10-5 =2.2 6+2-8/10*5 =4 6+2-8/10/5 =7.84 6+2*8+10+5 =37 6+2*8+10-5 =27 6+2*8+10*5 =72 6+2*8+10/5 =24 6+2*8-10+5 =17 6+2*8-10-5 =7 6+2*8-10*5 =-28 6+2*8-10/5 =20 6+2*8*10+5 =171 6+2*8*10-5 =161 6+2*8*10*5 =806 6+2*8*10/5 =38 6+2*8/10+5 =12.6 6+2*8/10-5 =2.6 6+2*8/10*5 =14 6+2*8/10/5 =6.32 6+2/8+10+5 =21.25 6+2/8+10-5 =11.25 6+2/8+10*5 =56.25 6+2/8+10/5 =8.25 6+2/8-10+5 =1.25 6+2/8-10-5 =-8.75 6+2/8-10*5 =-43.75 6+2/8-10/5 =4.25 6+2/8*10+5 =13.5 6+2/8*10-5 =3.5 6+2/8*10*5 =18.5 6+2/8*10/5 =6.5 6+2/8/10+5 =11.025 6+2/8/10-5 =1.025 6+2/8/10*5 =6.125 6+2/8/10/5 =6.005 6-2+8+10+5 =27 6-2+8+10-5 =17 6-2+8+10*5 =62 6-2+8+10/5 =14 6-2+8-10+5 =7 6-2+8-10-5 =-3 6-2+8-10*5 =-38 6-2+8-10/5 =10 6-2+8*10+5 =89 6-2+8*10-5 =79 6-2+8*10*5 =404 6-2+8*10/5 =20 6-2+8/10+5 =9.8 6-2+8/10-5 =-0.2 6-2+8/10*5 =8 6-2+8/10/5 =4.16 6-2-8+10+5 =11 6-2-8+10-5 =1 6-2-8+10*5 =46 6-2-8+10/5 =-2 6-2-8-10+5 =-9 6-2-8-10-5 =-19 6-2-8-10*5 =-54 6-2-8-10/5 =-6 6-2-8*10+5 =-71 6-2-8*10-5 =-81 6-2-8*10*5 =-396 6-2-8*10/5 =-12 6-2-8/10+5 =8.2 6-2-8/10-5 =-1.8 6-2-8/10*5 =0 6-2-8/10/5 =3.84 6-2*8+10+5 =5 6-2*8+10-5 =-5 6-2*8+10*5 =40 6-2*8+10/5 =-8 6-2*8-10+5 =-15 6-2*8-10-5 =-25 6-2*8-10*5 =-60 6-2*8-10/5 =-12 6-2*8*10+5 =-149 6-2*8*10-5 =-159 6-2*8*10*5 =-794 6-2*8*10/5 =-26 6-2*8/10+5 =9.4 6-2*8/10-5 =-0.6 6-2*8/10*5 =-2 6-2*8/10/5 =5.68 6-2/8+10+5 =20.75 6-2/8+10-5 =10.75 6-2/8+10*5 =55.75 6-2/8+10/5 =7.75 6-2/8-10+5 =0.75 6-2/8-10-5 =-9.25 6-2/8-10*5 =-44.25 6-2/8-10/5 =3.75 6-2/8*10+5 =8.5 6-2/8*10-5 =-1.5 6-2/8*10*5 =-6.5 6-2/8*10/5 =5.5 6-2/8/10+5 =10.975 6-2/8/10-5 =0.975 6-2/8/10*5 =5.875 6-2/8/10/5 =5.995 6*2+8+10+5 =35 6*2+8+10-5 =25 6*2+8+10*5 =70 6*2+8+10/5 =22 6*2+8-10+5 =15 6*2+8-10-5 =5 6*2+8-10*5 =-30 6*2+8-10/5 =18 6*2+8*10+5 =97 6*2+8*10-5 =87 6*2+8*10*5 =412 6*2+8*10/5 =28 6*2+8/10+5 =17.8 6*2+8/10-5 =7.8 6*2+8/10*5 =16 6*2+8/10/5 =12.16 6*2-8+10+5 =19 6*2-8+10-5 =9 6*2-8+10*5 =54 6*2-8+10/5 =6 6*2-8-10+5 =-1 6*2-8-10-5 =-11 6*2-8-10*5 =-46 6*2-8-10/5 =2 6*2-8*10+5 =-63 6*2-8*10-5 =-73 6*2-8*10*5 =-388 6*2-8*10/5 =-4 6*2-8/10+5 =16.2 6*2-8/10-5 =6.2 6*2-8/10*5 =8 6*2-8/10/5 =11.84 6*2*8+10+5 =111 6*2*8+10-5 =101 6*2*8+10*5 =146 6*2*8+10/5 =98 6*2*8-10+5 =91 6*2*8-10-5 =81 6*2*8-10*5 =46 6*2*8-10/5 =94 6*2*8*10+5 =965 6*2*8*10-5 =955 6*2*8*10*5 =4800 6*2*8*10/5 =192 6*2*8/10+5 =14.6 6*2*8/10-5 =4.6 6*2*8/10*5 =48 6*2*8/10/5 =1.92 6*2/8+10+5 =16.5 6*2/8+10-5 =6.5 6*2/8+10*5 =51.5 6*2/8+10/5 =3.5 6*2/8-10+5 =-3.5 6*2/8-10-5 =-13.5 6*2/8-10*5 =-48.5 6*2/8-10/5 =-0.5 6*2/8*10+5 =20 6*2/8*10-5 =10 6*2/8*10*5 =75 6*2/8*10/5 =3 6*2/8/10+5 =5.15 6*2/8/10-5 =-4.85 6*2/8/10*5 =0.75 6*2/8/10/5 =0.03 6/2+8+10+5 =26 6/2+8+10-5 =16 6/2+8+10*5 =61 6/2+8+10/5 =13 6/2+8-10+5 =6 6/2+8-10-5 =-4 6/2+8-10*5 =-39 6/2+8-10/5 =9 6/2+8*10+5 =88 6/2+8*10-5 =78 6/2+8*10*5 =403 6/2+8*10/5 =19 6/2+8/10+5 =8.8 6/2+8/10-5 =-1.2 6/2+8/10*5 =7 6/2+8/10/5 =3.16 6/2-8+10+5 =10 6/2-8+10-5 =0 6/2-8+10*5 =45 6/2-8+10/5 =-3 6/2-8-10+5 =-10 6/2-8-10-5 =-20 6/2-8-10*5 =-55 6/2-8-10/5 =-7 6/2-8*10+5 =-72 6/2-8*10-5 =-82 6/2-8*10*5 =-397 6/2-8*10/5 =-13 6/2-8/10+5 =7.2 6/2-8/10-5 =-2.8 6/2-8/10*5 =-1 6/2-8/10/5 =2.84 6/2*8+10+5 =39 6/2*8+10-5 =29 6/2*8+10*5 =74 6/2*8+10/5 =26 6/2*8-10+5 =19 6/2*8-10-5 =9 6/2*8-10*5 =-26 6/2*8-10/5 =22 6/2*8*10+5 =245 6/2*8*10-5 =235 6/2*8*10*5 =1200 6/2*8*10/5 =48 6/2*8/10+5 =7.4 6/2*8/10-5 =-2.6 6/2*8/10*5 =12 6/2*8/10/5 =0.48 6/2/8+10+5 =15.375 6/2/8+10-5 =5.375 6/2/8+10*5 =50.375 6/2/8+10/5 =2.375 6/2/8-10+5 =-4.625 6/2/8-10-5 =-14.625 6/2/8-10*5 =-49.625 6/2/8-10/5 =-1.625 6/2/8*10+5 =8.75 6/2/8*10-5 =-1.25 6/2/8*10*5 =18.75 6/2/8*10/5 =0.75 6/2/8/10+5 =5.0375 6/2/8/10-5 =-4.9625 6/2/8/10*5 =0.1875 6/2/8/10/5 =0.0075
