It’s Wednesday – here are some problems to play with

numbersHi everyone,

How are you doing?

I thought you might have some fun playing with different number combinations to keep your math mind up an working.

If you try any of them, leave a comment to let us know what you figured out and how.

1.)  Choose one of these numbers: 2, 3, 5, or 6.  Double the number you choose and then double the sum.  Keep doubling until you get a sum that is greater than 1,000.  How close to 1,000 is the number you reached?

2.) How many different 3-digit numbers can you make using the digits 1, 6 and 9?  Order the numbers.  What is the difference between the smallest and the largest number?

 3.)  I added two three-digit numbers and got a correct answer of 748.  What might the two numbers be?

Maybe you have another idea for a problem that we could solve.  Let us know what your idea is.  It would be fun to give it a try.
