Countdown

Age 7 to 14 Challenge Level:


Here is a chance to play a version of the classic Countdown Game.

The challenge is to use the numbers available and the four standard operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to hit the target.

Start by choosing any six cards. The top row always contains the numbers 25, 50, 75 and 100, and the bottom row contains the numbers 1 to 10. Alternatively you could click on "Quickstart". Then click on "Generate new target" and the computer will choose a target.

You can only use each card once in your solution, and it is always possible to find a solution.





Once you've had a go, click on "Show solutions" to show some possible ways in which the target can be reached.
