DAY 79:

Today’s Challenge

If each letter is assigned a value as follows, A=1 B=2 C=3 . . . Z=26, can you find a 7-letter word in the English language that has the value of 79 when the values of all seven letters are added together?

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.

The 4th & 7th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

3   4   10   11   24   27   30   32   35   44   54   60   70   77

How many factors of 60 are listed above?

Make 79 Challenge

Can you arrive at 79 by inserting 2, 5, 9 and 10 into the gaps on each line?

  •  (◯+◯)×◯+ = 79
  •  (◯+◯)×◯–◯⁴ = 79
  •  ◯²+◯×(◯–◯²) = 79
