DAY 205:

The Main Challenge

Pair the ten numbers below so that the difference between the two numbers in each pair is exactly divisible by 7:

6    17    28    37    45    58    64    78    83    98

The 7puzzle Challenge

The playing board of the 7puzzle game is a 7-by-7 grid containing 49 different numbers, ranging from 2 up to 84.

The 1st & 3rd rows of the playing board contain the following fourteen numbers:

2   9   13   14   15   22   25   36   40   42   45   66   72   80

What is the sum of the factors of 80 listed above?

The Lagrange Challenge

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

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

There are NINE different ways to make 205 when using Lagrange’s Theorem. How many can you find?

The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Based on our best-selling arithmetic board game.

Using 57 and 11 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which are the only TWO numbers it is possible to make from the list below?

10    20    30    40    50    60    70    80    90    100

The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 205 by inserting 21011 and 15 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (◯××◯)–◯ = 205
  •  (◯+◯÷◯)×◯ = 205
