Now that we are beginning to get the hang of these...

Fill in the operators for the following equation. You may use any operators you wish. There should be at least three different ways to solve this equation.

4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 = 2000

Typical operations that may be used include multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, exponentiation, square roots, factorials, and parens for grouping. Additionally you can squeeze numbers together, so using the above equation, 4, 44, and 444 (to name a few) would be legal.
