helping out at school today we were doing a maths game - its like the numbers game on Countdown.

You have 4 numbers and you have to use + - x / to get the answer 24

eg 6 4 7 7 you can say 6x4 = 24, and 1/1=1 and 24x1=24

now, we got the numbers 9 8 8 & 4 and I can't work out how to get 24

over to you brainboxes....
