If we have to use the digits in order, I submit:

729 = (7+2)^sqrt(9)
6859 = (6+8+5)^sqrt(9)
59319 = (5*9 - 3!*1)^sqrt(9)

185193=((1+8 )*(5+1)+sqrt(9))^3

What's the gamma function? Confused

It's an important function in analysis and heavy-lifting-style probability theory. But on the integers, it is defined as gamma(n) = (n-1)! A handy-dandy feature i ...
