Maths Countdown numbers challenge!

Hi all!

To stop your maths brains melting in this glorious sunshine, feel free to have a go at this tricky Countdown numbers challenge.

I know there are some competitive year 6 children who will, no doubt, come up with some solutions… can anyone else?

You can use any of these numbers ONCE. You don’t have to use them all. Use any mathematical operation you like.

Your numbers are: 75, 50, 9, 10, 1 and 4.

Your target is: 924

Make sure you post your answers and the method you have used.

Let’s see who can get the closest!

    I have an answer
    9+4=13
    13×75=975
    975-50=925
    925-1=924
