an eigth as a fraction is .125 so 8 x 125 =1000

You can only use eight 8s no other digits

I guess it's Binary notation then?

Nope binary is 1s and 0s plus base 2. This is all base 10.

She flew in, was an easy arrest as she was still tired & her arms ached!

How do eight eights add up to one thousand?

8 * 8 * 8 = 512
512 - 8 = 504
504 * cube root of 8 = 1008
1008 - (8 * (8/8)) = 1000

8 * 8 * 8 = 512
512 - 8 = 504
504 * cube root of 8 = 1008
1008 - (8 * (8/8)) = 1000

Is cube root cheating? I would think that involves a 3. I'm also uneasy at the use of 8/8, it works but feels a bit wrong.

8 × 8 × 8 = 512
512 - 8 = 504
504 × ((8+8)÷8) = 1008
1008 - 8 = 1000

Much neater than my cheater!
