How can you get the number 51 using mathematical operations and these numbers: 2,4,4,4,5? Note: Each number can only be used once and when squaring either use a four and two or two fours. Anyone who can help me out here?

Does 54-4/4-2 cut the mustard?

Do you really think anyone here can answer that? Sounds like too much work but i will be checking back to see if you get an answer.
