T he Main Challenge

Find the sum of the first SEVEN whole numbers that has a 3 or 5 as part of their number OR are multiples of 3 or 5.

The 7puzzle Challenge

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

The 1st & 7th rows contain the following fourteen numbers:

2   4   9   11   14   15   22   24   27   30   40   70   72   77

What is the difference between the highest and lowest multiples of 10?

The Lagrange Challenge

Lagrange’s Four-Square Theorem states that every positive integer can be made by adding up to four square numbers.

For example, 7 can be made by 2²+1²+1²+1² (or 4+1+1+1).

There are EIGHT ways of making 122 when using Lagrange’s Theorem. Can you find them all?

The Mathematically Possible Challenge

Using 24 and 12 once each, with + – × ÷ available, which FOUR numbers is it possible to make from the list below?

10    20    30    40    50    60    70    80    90    100

The Target Challenge

Can you arrive at 122 by inserting 2, 4, 7 and 10 into the gaps on each line?

•  ◯²+◯×(◯+◯) = 122
•  (◯+◯)²–double(◯+◯) = 122
•  ◯⁴÷◯+double(◯–◯) = 122
