Aileen was seeking a new forum game so I will give this a go, I just hope she likes maths
Actually I'm going out on a limb here that anybody likes Maths : D
If anyone has ever seen the long running TV show 'Countdown' they will probably get the idea.
To make a new game for people to work out simply go to https://www.google.com
then type in a sum. Note you should use * for multiplying and / for dividing and I advise making use of brackets. For example you could use:
Google will tell you that this equals 451.
So then to post a new game you would simply put the target and all the numbers you used. So in this case:
Numbers: 75, 7, 6, 3, 3, 2
It would then be up to somebody to work out how to get to that target.RULES:
- Please make sure the target you post is possible. If it's a complicated one I advise writing it down somewhere in case everyone gets stuck on it and what's to know the answer.
- I'm not sure how to run the game yet so I'll just let anyone post new games for the moment and people can just solve whichever ones they like.
- You don't have to use all the numbers you post in getting to the target though. For example you could put in Google 100*4+5/5 to get to a target of 401 but then give the numbers: 100, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6 so you have added in the extra 6's to make it less obvious what numbers to use.
- You don't have to stick to the same numbers as Countdown does. You can make it as easy or hard as you like. But be warned if you make it too hard people might not be very happy with you!
