DAY 365:

Today’s Challenge

This type of calculation awaits every player who plays Mathematically Possible, our arithmetic and strategy board game.  The strategy aspect of the game comes later on.

After rolling 1, 5 and 6 on your three dice:

Part 1: What is the highest target number in the range 1-30 that is possible to achieve using these three numbers once each, and with + – × ÷ available?

Part 2: Similar to above, which whole numbers in the range 1-10 can be made?

Click on Mathematically Possible to gather more details of our very first creation and Roll3Dice to play a simplified version of the arithmetic part at home.

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 Top-Left to Bottom-Right diagonal of the playing board contains the following seven numbers:

3       22       24       48       49       80       84

Using these seven numbers exactly once each, with + – × ÷ available to use in your calculation, can you arrive at the target number of 100?

Make 365 Challenge
