Re: Number PuzzlesHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130905 14:36:27
Re: Number PuzzlesThe example that i have given is similar to the worksheet. #4 20130905 14:47:17
Re: Number PuzzlesOf course the answer is 14 and 1 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'

I suspect this work is leading up to quadratics and the quadratic formula **. You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself..........Galileo Galilei
