Hi.  For an interesting article, see the blog titled Happy 10*9*8+7+6-5+4*321 !

        There are some nice (very simple) math puzzles using consecutive integers that produce years.  For example, 10+(9 x 8 x (7/6) x 5 x 4)+321 and 0-12+(34 x 56)+7 x (8+9) both yield 2011, and (10 x 9 x 8) + 7 + 6 - 5 + (4 x 321) yields 2012.

        Two questions: (1) can anyone generate a similar puzzle yielding 2014 and (2) is there a general Mathematica program that can generate these?

        Best,

        Harvey
