View Full Version : The Second Maths Challenge Game!

To play this game I need 8 daily players, so please sign up now!

How To Play?
I post a square of 9 numbers:
You then have to make the centre number by: timesing, adding, dividing and subtracting the numbers around the outside.*
So to get the centre number 156 you could: add 20 and 3 to get 23, then times the 23 by 7 to get 161 and subtract the 5 to get the answer 156. (Your answer should look like this: 20+3=23, 23x7=161, 161-5=156).
You can only use a number once!

I will post a new square every day and the person with the least amount of points will leave the game.

The points work like this:
If you get the number exactly right you get 10 points.
If you are 1 number off the exact number you get 8 points.
2 numbers off 6 points.
3 numbers off 5 points.
4 numbers off 4 points. etc.

Also you get extra points for the amount of numbers you use. So if you use all 5 of the numbers to make the centre number you get an extra 5 points. etc.

When you have your answer you will have to private message as you don't want anyone to cheat and to see your answer.

There is no prize but I will design a trophy with your name on it and it will be my profile picture!

Please note this game could go on for a week so you must visit the Forums Daily!

Have Fun!
