# 30 April 2012: 88 DAYS TO GO

With the London Olympic Games soon upon us, I will be setting a daily 7-number challenge as follows, but those 7 numbers will differ each day and the target answer will always be the number of days remaining to the opening of the Games:

Insert + – x or รท where you see ? so the following 7-number calculation will eventually equal 88 when working from Left to Right (with no brackets involved):

7 ? 2 ? 5 ? 3 ? 3 ? 6 ? 2 = 88
