##### Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

A walk is made up of diagonal steps from left to right, starting at the origin and ending on the x-axis. How many paths are there for 4 steps, for 6 steps, for 8 steps?

### Counting Binary Ops

##### Age 14 to 16 Challenge Level:

How many ways can the terms in an ordered list be combined by repeating a single binary operation. Show that for 4 terms there are 5 cases and find the number of cases for 5 terms and 6 terms.

### Symmetric Tangles

##### Age 14 to 16

The tangles created by the twists and turns of the Conway rope trick are surprisingly symmetrical. Here's why!

### Obviously?

Find the values of n for which 1^n + 8^n - 3^n - 6^n is divisible by 6.

### One Basket or Group Photo

##### Age 7 to 18 Challenge Level:

Libby Jared helped to set up NRICH and this is one of her favourite problems. It's a problem suitable for a wide age range and best tackled practically.

### Binomial Coefficients

##### Age 14 to 18

An introduction to the binomial coefficient, and exploration of some of the formulae it satisfies.
