DAY 76:

Today’s Challenge

It is possible to use seven 4’s (4, 4, 4, 4, 4, 4 and 4) once each, together with the four operations + – × ÷, to make all the different target numbers 1, 2, 3 and 4.

For instance, one way of arriving at the number 1 is  shown here:

4 – (4÷4) – (4÷4) – (4÷4) = 1

Can you make the next three target numbers 23 and 4?

The 7puzzle Challenge

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