Ok, let's see here. You have the numbers: 2 3 5 and 8 in order to get 104. You can only use each number once so adding the numbers together won't get you anywhere so let's try P.E.M.D.A.S
I got the operation of 8 x (5 x 2 + 3)
Now following the Order of operations you can tell that you need to do what in the () first.
So that is: (5 x 2 + 3) = ( 15 + 3 ) = 8 x 13
Now we just multiply that by 8: 8 x 13 = 104
There you are
