I would guess just integers.

Numbers: 17, 5, 13, 19

It's time for bed and I don't have time to figure this out. I'll edit in the answer tomorrow.

Looks like there are no solutions.

Ingrediants: 17,16,1,12
Solution: (17-16+1)*12= 24

New ingrediants: 17,16,1, 10
Possible and possibru! (I like the way "possibrUUU" sounds).

Yay, I like maths! :)
Spoiler:  
(I avoid the number which equals 1+1, due to a superstition, that`s why I haven`t parted in this game before; here it has been written by the copy-paste option)
