Not bad i got most of it but not all so i got fustrated.

Took me two guesses, and I'm not usually the one to get trial and error questions!

Wasn't that rather boringly obvious? What else would you try to start with other than continuing to add the largest number you can make with all fours that produces a result less than or equal to 1000?
