### Re: Number Daisy and Proof?

Hi stefy,

Do you mean with mine, in post #16? With that one, it's 12+1+8.

If you're referring to the one in post #13, mathsyperson already made that observation in post #14.

Are you sure that's valid?

Yes.

You are only allowed to add neighbours (numbers touching each other) and you can only use one of each number in a sum.

### Re: Number Daisy and Proof?

Yes, I know, but are you sure that includes that type of connectedness?

### Re: Number Daisy and Proof?

The examples in that link don't include that type, but that may only be coincidence. It seems valid to me. But not to you?

EDIT: Oops...there is an example there that's just like my 21 (sorry). It's 5+1+2=8, in their daisy that goes from 1 to 25.

Hi phro

Ah, I see. Missed that one. Thanks! That makes 46 largest so far.

### Re: Number Daisy and Proof?

That means it will be difficult. Since I have had a few goes also, that means it is darn near impossible.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Only "darn near"...so there is a glimmer? There must be a proof out there somewhere, just waiting to be found. But not by me...I give up.

Darn near means a smidge passed impossible.
