Scholars – Weekly Brainteaser Answer – 11th January

Last week we asked:

Assume you are using a basic calculator and press the numbers in the order shown, replacing each question mark with a mathematical sign.

Plus, minus, multiply and divide can each be used once only.

In which order should they be used to score 24?

2    ?     8    ?     6    ?     9    ?    3   =    24

Well done to Finlay (9AH), Hayley (8ML) and Elizabeth (8ML) who all got the correct answer to the weekly brainteaser. They will be receiving a Praise Postcard and Hall Points for their efforts.

The answer was:

Minus, Divide, Plus, and Multiply.
