# DAY/DYDD 103: The Main Challenge

Here’s a 7-part challenge to test your basic arithmetic knowledge:

1.  What is 56 divided by 14?
2.  (1 + 11) + (20 – 4) = ?
3.  Find which one of these is a factor of 14. Is it 3, 5, 7 or 10?
4.  What is the next number?  15, 30, 45, 60, …
5.  10,000 × 0.001 = ?
6.  (2 + 3) – (4 – 9) = ?
7.  What is the sum of 0.81 and 0.5?

Can you get 7 out of 7 correct? 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.

The 2nd & 5th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

6   7   8   16   17   21   28   48   50   55   63   64   81   84

Find THREE sets of three different numbers that have a sum of 100. The Lagrange Challenge

Lagrange’s Four-Square Theorem states that every positive integer can be made by adding up to four square numbers.

For example, 7 can be made by 2²+1²+1²+1² (or 4+1+1+1).

There are FIVE ways of making 103 when using Lagrange’s Theorem. Can you find them? The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Using 57 and 10 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which is the ONLY number it is possible to make from the list below?

50    51    52    53    54    55    56    57    58    59

The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 103 by inserting 1, 2, 6 and 8 into the gaps on both lines?

•  ◯²+◯²+◯²–◯² = 103
