Friday Funny: 6 The Hard Way

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHere is another numeric challenge from the internet to keep you thinking. This one does involve mathematics unlike the previous Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles post.

This one should have the gears spinning as you work out the solutions.

The puzzle is called “6 The Hard Way” and involves you creating mathematical equations that will make three digits (from 0 to 9) equal 6.

6TheHardWay

Here are the rules:

  • You cannot draw a number.
  • To get to 6, all you can use are mathematical symbols – as long as they don’t include a number.
  • You can solve the equations in any order.

To get you started, I will give you one of the solutions:

6 + 6 – 6 = 6

Respond in the comments how you went, but don’t give away any answers.

Hint: The solution to the 8’s equation is the hardest and needs all the techniques you would have worked out to solve the other equations, so do that one last.

Enjoy

David

PS: I will post the source links later as they include solutions.

Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles

David Meego - Click for blog homepageToday’s Friday Funny comes from something I saw on the internet. I would normally give credit to my source, but as that will also give away the solutions, I will wait until later when I post the solutions.

Can you solve these three numeric puzzles? …… Despite the title of this article, they do have solutions.

Respond in the comments if you think you have solutions, but don’t give away any answers.

Here you go…

Puzzle 1

By only adding one straight line to the following equation make it a true expression.

Note: You are not allowed to change the equals to not equals.

Puzzle1

Puzzle 2

In the same way that three 20’s add up to 60, use the same number three times to create a sum that adds up to 60.

Puzzle2

Puzzle 3

Using only the four digits 2, 3, 4, 5 and the two symbols +, = make a true equation.

Puzzle3

Following challenging my family with these puzzles, I have to add the following clarifications/rules:

  • All puzzles are using base 10. No hexadecimal allowed.
  • In Puzzle 1, you cannot alter the equals sign in any way. For example: changing it to be less than or equal, greater than or equal, or not equal.
  • In Puzzle 2, you cannot add any other mathematical operations.
  • In Puzzle 3, you must use all four digits and two symbols. You cannot rotate the symbols to create multiply symbol or the number 11.

At least my family were trying for creative solutions. But they did manage to solve all three in the end.

Enjoy
