Do you think you're good at maths? If yes, we have a challenging brain teaser for you. This brain teaser was shared on Reddit by the user "MagmaMazium". While sharing the puzzle, the Reddit user wrote that they were given this question in school. However, they have been unable to solve it. Do you think you'll be able to help this Redditor by solving this question?

The question reads, "I've been trying to solve this for a while now; chatgpt is too dumb to figure it out. You are given a set of numbers (1,2,7,8,50,75), and your goal is to reach the number '796' using the numbers given to you. You can use addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to reach the target number, you can only use each number once, and you cannot join the numbers (e.g. '1' and '2' cannot become '12'); how do you get to the target number."
