DAY 180

Today’s Challenge

This is a continuation of a number puzzle, posted on DAY 10, made famous by French writer George Perec.

In that challenge, we asked you to use seven 7’s (7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7 and 7) once each, with + – × and ÷ available, to make target numbers 1 to 3.

To carry on the pattern and make 4, you could simply do:

  •  7 – [(7÷7) + (7÷7) + (7÷7)] = 4

We now invite you to make all the target numbers from 5 through to 9.

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 & 6th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

2     5     9     12     14     15     18     20     22     33     40     49     56     72
