DAY 171:

Today’s Challenge

You have the same starting number and final answer, both 22.  There are 10 arithmetical steps altogether but the 10th, and final, step is missing.  If this final step involves a whole number, what should it be to arrive at 22?

Start with the number 22, then:

+2     ÷6     ×4     3     ×2     +4     ÷5     +6     ×2     ?     =     22
