Isaac Newton is stranded on an island covered in forest.

One day, when the wind is blowing from the west, lightning strikes the west end of the island and sets fire to the forest. The fire is very violent, burning everything in its path, and without intervention the fire will burn the whole island, killing the man in the process.

There are cliffs around the island, so he cannot jump off.

How can the Isaac Newton survive the fire? (There are no buckets or any other means to put out the fire)

We can create number 100 by using all numbers, i.e.0123456789 and mathematical operators (+/-) in many ways.

Example

98 + 7 + 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 + 2 - 1 = 100

But if we add a condition that the use of the number 21 is the must. Then there are only a few solutions.

One of such solution is:

98 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 + 3 + 21 = 100

Can you tell any other solution?
