The Main Challenge

Find the sum of the numbers that remain after eliminating multiples of 3, 5 and 7 from all the odd numbers between 10 and 40.

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 & 6th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

5   8   12   17   18   20   28   33   48   49   55   56   63   64

From the list, which three different numbers have a sum of 100?

The Lagrange Challenge

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

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

Show how you can make 150, in ELEVEN different ways, when using Lagrange’s Theorem.

The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Using the three digits 26 and 9 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which TWO numbers is it possible to make from the list below?

1     8     27     64     125


The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 150 by inserting 102025 and 30 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (◯+◯)×(◯–◯) = 150
  •  ◯×◯–double(◯+◯) = 150
