Greetings! I am trying to to figure out how to generate all the possible numbers from 0 to 4 294 967 296 using the following conditions: I can use only two numbers as operands, both of which can range from 0 to 255, but I can use 256 different mathematical formulas to combine the two numbers. In example, formula with index no. 1 would tell the program to multiply the two numbers together, getting through the first 65 536 possible combinations. Then formula with index no. 2 would tell the first number to multiply by itself and then multiply by the second number. And so on... Can you please help me to determine how many and what kind of formula combinations do i have to use to combine the two numbers to achieve any number from 0 to 4 294 967 296?
