For all you maths lovers

Its just like the countdown numbers game (everyone from Uk and Ireland will know it).

For those who dont, randomly pick 6 numbers from either 25, 50, 75 or 100 or 1-10 and a target number.

The next poster will have to try to reach the target number by addition/subtraction/multiplication/division with those numbers.

The first person to get it posts a new one.

Rules:

1.You don't have to use all the numbers

2.You cant use the same number twice

3. you cant post a new one until you have solved the 1st one

I'll start us off:

50, 3, 7, 5, 3, 6

and the target number is 157

(I closed my eyes and pressed randomly on the mumberpad for that)

Don't know if it's possible, show me it is....

Sorry, someone posted while i was typing, go ahead and disregard mine...

Target: 64

You aren't allowed minus numbers, so I will assume it is 25 instead of -25.

9-1= 8 50/25=2 6+2= 8 8x8=64

Also, the target number has to be above 100 and less then 1000.

Okay, i got confused, because ts had -50

(50 - 7) x (10 + 10 - 1)

I'll think of something to ask later.. This ****'s hard

EDIT: Here..

OK let me clarify the rules for you.

The ONLY numbers you can use are:

1-10

25

50

75

100

So the post above with 16, 43 and 87 is just silly, although just to play along 5-1=4

Also the number has to be 3 digits.

Don't worry about it

Also the poster of the challenge should also know how to answer their own thing otherwise it may be impossible.

25, 75, 4, 9, 100, 2

642

75 x 9 = 675

2 x 4 + 25= 33

675-33=642

Now give me a vowel!

75, 3, 8, 8, 2, 1

Target: 144

Edit: Oh dear, I made the target by using all the numbers in different manners so it'd be possible. It just happened to turn out to be easy as confusing people who watch Big Brother.

75 + (8 x 8) = 139

+ 3 + 2 = 5

= 144

4 6 7 25 75

target number = 150

25x6.

That was easy.

Mine-

7, 9, 3, 4, 8, 100.

Target 476

#20

25x6.

That was easy.

Mine-

7, 9, 3, 4, 8, 100.

Target 476

very easy

(100x4)

+ (8x9)

= 472

+7 - 3

=476

It's actually easier to do in your head than write it down.

ok

**75, 6, 2, 6, 3, 7**

target of

**213**

very very easy for the next person (randomly pressed buttons)

edit:

7-6=1

TARGET

3 25 75 7 2 8

645

yours was first but I missed it

(7 + 2) x 75 = 675

8 - 3 = 5

5 + 25 = 30

675 - 30 = 645

edit 2:

I got one...

Target number 817:

50, 10, 10, 7, 3, 1

no one answered this one

(3x10) = 30

50 + 30 + 1 = 81

81 x 10 = 810

+ 7

= 817

edit 3: they did but I missed it

Hope that's right.
