Reach 100

Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:

Simply writing out the numbers $1 - 9$ along the top of your paper can be a great help.

Imagine arranging your four two-digit numbers in columns to do the addition sum, like this:

$5 \: 2$
$1 \; 9$
$5 \; 1$
$2 \; 9$

If the total has to be $100$, think about how the four digits you choose could add to make the $0$ in the units column, then look at the tens column.
