Very simple, I saw it on a friend's Facebook page. He doesn't know the answer but claims it can be done. I gave it a shot for about 20 minutes but couldn't come up with anything.

Use the numbers 1,2,3,4,5, AND 6 to get 96 using only addition, and only using each number once. You can combine the numbers to make another number (for example 1 and 2 to make 12). Remember you can only use the number once.

I doubt there is a solution, let's look at it this way:
We have to get 6, in order to get 6 we can NOT use less than 3 numbers as we will then have to make 100(134+652) somewhere. We can NOT use more than 4 either as that would leave us with just 1 number to make the tens.
This means we will have to combine 3 or 4 numbers for 6.

This can be done as:
1+2+3, which leaves us with 40+50+60 = too much
There are no more solutions with 3 numbers as they would all exceed 6 and be less than 16 as 6+5+4=15
2+3+5+6 which leaves us with 10+40 = too little
1+4+5+6 which leaves us with 20+30 = too little
There are no more solutions for 4 as they can't reach 6(obviously) and if you do not use the 6 you can't get to 16: 5+4+3+2=14

I don't see a way to do this, but I might be wrong.

If were looked at it from a trick question standpoint, it says to use 1-6 and only use them once but it doesn't specifically say your only limited to those numbers. So hypothetically, I guess you could use 7? I may be looking too much into this, I don't know.

No negatives, fractions, or decimals allowed.

It might be a trick question?

14+56+23+3?

I combined the numbers to make another number and only used the number I made once. I dont know if combining counts as "using" the number or if it means you can only use it once in the addition?

I think negatives have to be allowed and the answer is 65 + 43 + -12. That's the most logical conclusion I could come up with. It's either impossible or that's the answer.
