What is the smallest number with exactly 14 divisors?
Many numbers can be expressed as the sum of two or more consecutive integers. For example, 15=7+8 and 10=1+2+3+4. Can you say which numbers can be expressed in this way?
Do you know a quick way to check if a number is a multiple of two?
How about three, four or six?
The diagram shows a solid with six triangular faces. At each vertex there is a number and two of the numbers are 1 and 5, as shown. The sum of the numbers at the three vertices of each face is calculated, and all the sums are the same. What is the sum of all five numbers at the vertices?
