DAY/DYDD 1:

The Main Challenge

You’re playing Roll3Dice and have rolled the numbers 1, 2 and 4 with your three dice.

This is a truly unique combination, being the only one where you can make ALL ten target numbers from 1-10, using + – × ÷ as seen below.

Can you place 1, 2 and 4 into the three gaps on each line so all ten calculations work out?

  •  ◯–(◯+◯)  =  1
  •  ◯×◯–◯  =  2
  •  ◯÷◯+◯  =  3
  •  ◯×(◯–◯)  =  4
  •  ◯+◯–◯  =  5
  •  ◯×◯+◯  =  6
  •  ◯×◯–◯  =  7
  •  ◯×◯×◯  =  8
  •  ◯×◯+◯  =  9
  •  ◯×(◯+◯)  =  10

The 7puzzle Challenge

The playing board of the 7puzzle game is a 7-by-7 grid containing 49 different numbers, ranging from 2 up to 84.

2   8   9   14   15   17   22   28   40   48   55   63   64   72

What is the sum of all the multiples of 5?
