Your task is to find all the combinations of 5 distinct tiles such that the product of 4 of the fractions is equal to the 5th fraction, which is itself equal to the number 3.
Algebraically, this equates to:
where the square brackets [A/B] merely serve as a reminder that these are domino tiles. The order of the 4 tiles on the left-hand side is not important.
Find all the solutions where the above product equals 3 and that include the tile [5/2].
Find all the solutions where the above product equals 3.
