this string of hex-digits reduces to "42"
A few of which are:

7+c+9+6+9+5+c+b+2+3+a+7+1+d+8+5+1+6+8+8+c+c+0+d+7-f*8-b+1*0-7*2 7-c-9-6-9-5-c-b-2-3-a-7-1-d-8-5-1-6-8-8-c-c-0+d*7+f*8-b*1+0-7+2 7*c*9*6*9*5*c*b*2*3*a*7*1*d*8*5*1*6*8*8*c*c*0*d-7+f+8+b+1-0+7*2 7*c*9*6*9*5*c*b*2*3*a*7*1*d*8*5*1*6*8*8/c/c*0-d+7+f+8+b-1*0+7*2

#!/usr/local/bin/perl use 5.010; use strict; use warnings FATAL => 'all'; my $hex = '7c9695cb23a71d851688cc0d7f8b1072'; my @num = map {hex} split '', $hex; forty_two(42 => @num); sub forty_two { my ($target, $expr, $first, @rest) = @_; state $count_hit = 0; state $count_total = 0; unless (defined $first) { $count_total++; if (eval $expr == $target) { $count_hit++; $expr =~ s/(\d+)/sprintf "%x", $1/eg; say "$count_hit/$count_total: $expr == 42"; } return; } forty_two($target, "$expr+$first", @rest); forty_two($target, "$expr-$first", @rest); forty_two($target, "$expr*$first", @rest); if ($first) { my ($last_term) = $expr =~ m{(\d+(?:[*/]\d+)*)$}; forty_two($target, "$expr/$first", @rest) if eval "$last_term % $first == 0"; } }

Please don't wait for it to finish running ;)
