Description

This is Countdown for Programmers and of course the numbers are either Octal or Hexadecimal. A decimal capability is included for reference or as an early morning practice.
The game is demanding already in the decimal version, but the octal and hexadecimal versions are even tougher. At least if you're not a programmer. To a programmer it's obvious that 060 + 020 = 0100, or that 0x86 + 0x65 = 0xeb.
Here's the fun. Suppose you're running in Hex mode. You get 0x6 numbers n in N. For (i = 0; i < 6; i++) you can choose if the n is ((n >= 1) && (n <= 0x10)) || (n is in {0x40, 0x80, 0xc0, 0x100}). The app then produces a random result <= 0xfff. Use any operators in {+, -, *, /} and the 0x6 numbers to get the result. Throughout the calculations, only numbers in N are allowed.
