DAY 126:

Today’s Challenge

You have SIX each of 7puzzleland‘s brand-new 4p and 7p coins. Your task is to try and make various amounts from 20p and above with these coins.

As shown here, the first few have been done for you:

  • 20p can be made from 5 × 4p coins,
  • 21p from 3 × 7p coins,
  • 22p from 2 × 7p coins and 2 × 4p coins . . .

From 20p upwards, what is the lowest amount you CANNOT make from your 12 coins?

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 2nd & 4th rows of the playing board contain the following fourteen numbers:

3   8   10   17   28   32   35   44   48   54   55   60   63   64

What is the difference between the highest multiple of 11 and lowest multiple of 7?

Make 126 Challenge

Can you arrive at 126 by inserting 2, 3, 6 and 9 into the gaps on each line?

  •  ◯×◯×(◯–◯) = 126
  •  ◯×(◯×◯–◯²) = 126
  •  ◯²×◯+◯×◯ = 126
  •  ◯³×◯–◯²×◯ = 126
  •  ◯²×◯+double(◯×◯) = 126
