Using each of the numbers 2, 2 and 5 exactly once each, with + – × ÷ available, can you find all NINE numbers from 1-20 that are **mathematically possible** to make?

**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 3rd & 6th rows of the playing board contain the following fourteen numbers:

How many more even numbers than odd numbers are listed?

**Make 27 Challenge**

Can you arrive at 27 by inserting 3, 3, 4 and 6 into the gaps on each line?

- (◯+◯)×◯+◯ = 27
- ◯²+◯–◯×◯ = 27
- ◯×◯+√(◯×◯) = 27
- (◯+◯)×◯–◯ = 27
- (◯²+◯²)×◯÷◯ = 27
