The idea is to make 24 using the given four integers and using only + - * / and (). You have to use all of the integers and can use each only once.

For example:
1 2 3 4 = 1*2*3*4 or alternatively 4*(1+2+3) = 24

Off you go. :D

1) 5 5 5 1 = ( 5 - 1/5 ) * 5 = 24 Mudskipper
2) 3 3 7 7 = (3/7 + 3) * 7 = 24 Mudskipper
3) 1 3 4 6 = 6/(1-(3/4)) = 24 SpelingBee
4) 8 8 3 3 = 8/(3-(8 /3)) = 24 SpelingBee
5) 5 6 4 1 = 4/(1-(5/6)) = 24 SpelingBee
6) 3 1 9 9 = (9 - 1) * 9 / 3 = 24 Bunk
7) 8 3 1 8 = (1+8)*8=72/3= 24 Zippy
8) 6 4 3 8 = (4+8) * 6 / 3 = 24 Bunk
9) 6 7 9 5 = ((7 -5) * 9) + 6 = 24 rd409
10) 3 6 5 2 = (6*5) - (3*2) = 24 Bunk

Edit: There are solvers online so no fcking cheating
