### (w)holy Numbers

# Reach 100

##### Stage: 2 Challenge Level:

Here is a grid of four "boxes":

You must choose four different digits from $1 - 9$ and put one in each box. For example:

This gives four two-digit numbers:

 $52$ (reading along the $1$st row) $19$ (reading along the $2$nd row) $51$ (reading down the left hand column) $29$ (reading down the right hand column)

In this case their sum is $151$.

Your challenge is to find four different digits that give four two-digit numbers which add to a total of $100$.

How many ways can you find of doing it?
