DAY/DYDD 12:

The Main Challenge

Add together the 7th prime number, the 7th square number, the 7th 2-digit number and the 7th whole number that contains a 7. What is your answer?

The 7puzzle Challenge

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

The 5th & 6th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

5   6   7   12   16   18   20   21   33   49   50   56   81   84

Which two numbers listed have a sum of 101?

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 TWO ways to make 12 when using Lagrange’s Theorem. Can you find both?

The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Using 45 and 10 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which are the only TWO numbers it is possible to make from the list below?

40    41    42    43    44    45    46    47    49    49

The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 12 by inserting 2, 3, 4 and 6 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (◯–◯)×◯×◯ = 12
  •  ◯×◯(◯+◯) = 12
  •  ◯÷◯×(◯+◯) = 12
  •  ◯²–◯×◯÷◯ = 12
  •  (◯²+◯³)×◯÷◯ = 12
