DAY/DYDD 5:

The Main Challenge

This Octaplus puzzle challenges you to find the values of eight letters, A to H, from the given information below. Each letter is a different whole number in the range 1-50:

  1.  H is a third of F,
  2.  B is half of F,
  3.  D minus F is either 15 or 16,
  4.  One-seventh of D is a whole number and odd,
  5.  E equals H plus D,
  6.  G equals E minus B,
  7.  C is a fifth of G,
  8.  A is equal to 120 minus the sum of the other seven numbers.

Can you find the value of each of the eight letters?

The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 5 by inserting 5, 10, 15 and 20 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (÷◯)+(÷◯) = 5
  •  (–◯)×÷◯ = 5
  •  ◯(×÷◯) = 5
  •  ◯(–◯)²÷◯ = 5  (there are 2 ways)
  •  √[(×÷◯)–◯] = 5
