The task: Using all the digits of the year 1492 only once and in the exact order that they appear in the year 1492, construct all numbers from 1 to 100! You can use any of the following operations: square root, factorials, exponents, decimals, parentheses, negative numbers, addition, multiplication, subtraction, division. Examples: 84 = 14 x √9 x 2 90 = (1+4) x 9 x 2 We still need the following numbers calculated: 40 41 49 59 61 62 64 The rest we’ve already calculated! Thanks for your help!

Another game, eh? Interesting... $\displaystyle 40=1\times4+9^2$ $\displaystyle 41=(1+4)+9^2$ $\displaystyle 64=(1\sqrt4+9)^2$ I'll leave the rest to Denis McField.

Perhaps Monox D. IFly has been doing a headstand, as 9² isn't 36. 40 = 14*√9  2 41 = 1 + 4! + 9*2 49 = (1 + (√4)^(√9))^2 59 = 1 + 4*(√9)/.2 61 = 1 + 4^(√9)  2 62 = 1*4^(√9)  2 64 = (1*(√4)^(√9))^2

Oops, guess I am being stoned when doing my headstand. Well, at least my answer for 64 was correct, so my post didn't go in vain.

Oh and here are the answers to your questions... : 40= 14* squrt9 2 41=1+4!+9*2 49=(1+(squrt4)^(9))^2 59=1+4*(squrt9) divided by 2
