Wei-Hwa's Puzzle Challenge #1 (and solution)

The post code quest widget (sorry, Google doesn't seem to make it easy to see what the widget URL is) for puzzle challenges was updated with "Using the numbers 3, 3, 8, 8 (in any order), make a mathematical expression that equals 24. You can use only addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division (and parentheses), but in any order you wish."

It's hardcore math geek stuff. Not really my cup of tea. If you're absolutely crazy stuck and you want to give up ... the solution is here. I swear I was this close ....

For those who wind up here just looking for a clue and not the solution, I'll just say that it requires crazy creative division.
