I'm so glad I came across it. I have developed an odd obsession in maths, and I typed 'maths' in Google, and found this place.

As a challenge you could put some numbers and a total and you have to + , - , x and divide for example

3 6 9 9 10 50 total to get to is 639

50 x 12 (9 + 3) = 600

9 - 6 = 3 x 10 = 30 + 9 = 39. Add the two: 39 + 600 = 639.

Ooohh ... someone shouldn't schedule exams like that.

I hope you do well.

(If they use the same questions for other people on another day, I wonder if the results would be better?)
