Sorry, the contest is over. Come back in another week for Halloween Contest. Operator Game is a fun and creative way to play with
numbers. The goal of the Operator Game is to create an equation to reach the
target number from 4 given numbers using a set of allowed operators. Rules: Operators allowed and points: · 1 point: addition (+), subtraction (). · 2 points: multiplication (*), division (/). · 3 points: exponent (2^3 or exp(2,3)), square root (sqrt(4)) Requirements: Each given number is used exactly once. No other numbers can be used. The same operator cannot be applied repeatedly if the result is the same or infinitely to get a converging number to avoid infinite points. Goal: Find an expression with as many points as possible, using the given 4 numbers exactly once and the allowed operators to produce the target number. Examples: Numbers given are 2,3,4,5. Target number: 7 Possible solutions:
Contest problems: Problem A: Numbers given: 1, 4, 6, 8. Target number: 2. Problem B: Numbers given: 3, 10, 12, 13. Target number: 10. For youth under 18 years old, submit your answers for Problem A and B here.
