    2 dozen

    "Here Al Bear have a look at this!" Jezza Bear exclaimed. " I have got the numbers 1, 4, 5 and 6 fiddled about with them and made 24"

    "So what" dismissed Al Bear

    "Oh come Al, I am working on the following rules."

    1) Each one of the numbers should be used exactly once.
    2) I was only allowed to use plus, subtract, multiply and divide operators
    3) I was not allowed to concatenate i.e. it is not allowed to use 1 and 6 as 16).
    4) Parenthesis are allowed.

    By the way Loungers 2, yes 2 [choccy bars] are on offer
