DAY 160:

The Main Challenge

Read the following five clues:

  •  I am a 2-digit number,
  •  My 1st digit is bigger than my 2nd digit,
  •  I am less than 50,
  •  I am an odd number,
  •  I am not a prime number.

and work out which number I am.

The 7puzzle Challenge

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

The 1st & 5th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

2   6   7   9   14   15   16   21   22   40   50   72   81   84

Which of the two multiples of 10 has more factors?

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 160, in TWO different ways, when using Lagrange’s Theorem.

The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Based on our best-selling arithmetic board game.

Using the three digits 35 and 8 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which is the ONLY number it’s possible to make from the list below?

11    22    33    44    55    66    77    88    99    110
