GAME EXAMPLES

One to Many

The four randomly generated numbers are 2, 2, 5, and 6. If the target numbers are 11, 12, 26, and 40 (the actual game will have more), the following would score 11 points:

11 = 2 + 5 + 6 - 2 (+3 points)

11 = T(2 + 2) + 6 - 5 (+2 points) [T is the function for the nth triangular number]

12 = sqrt(5 - (2/2)) * 6 (+3 points)

26 = 2 * 2 * 5 + 6 (+3 points)

There is no given solution for the target number 40. Thus, no points can be scored for this target number.

Many to One

The target number generated is 57. The sets of four numbers are as follows:

Set 1: 2, 3, 6, 6

Set 2: 1, 1, 4, 5

Set 3: 1, 2, 3, 5

(The actual game will have more sets)

The following would score 8 points:

Set 1: 57 = T(6) + T(6) + T(2 + 3) (+3 points)

There is no given solution for Set 2. Thus, no points can be scored for this set.

Set 3: 57 = (5! / 2) - (3 / 1) (+3 points)

Set 3: 57 = T(T(3)) * 2 + T(5 / 1) (+2 points)
