    Default Impossible question

    Solve this question!

    __+__+__=30!

    Rules:
    Your only allowed to use odd numbers from 1-15 like 1,3,5,7,9,11,13 and 15!
    You can use the numbers listen above TWICE!
    You cannot use zero or any negative number!


    There was a final exam in UPSC in 2013,out of all only one found the solution.
    The winner was Guarav Awargal!

    Global News: An average citizen was walking through the streets when he found a couple of children crying besides the tree where the kitten was frightfully stuck at the branches of the tree. He saved the cat and lived happily ever after! Good job, Mr. Average Citizen!
