Zachary, age 8I've been looking for some problems like these to use when tutoring younger math students, thanks.

Jaran, age 18I think the hardest part was having one left over. I am pretty sure I found my answer in two days. I really like problems of the week. They are fun to solve.

Elizabeth, age 8So we started to use the calculator and we were around 50 and one of us said they think they were getting close to the answer. So we started checking the 50’s very closely and one of us said, “I think I’m really close.” And then we found it we were jumping into the air screaming of joy and screaming out “the answer is 61.” So we found out the answer and that was 61.

Kenny, age 11I want mine to be checked because I want to learn knew things and get smarter. I would like to improve in math and I think this will help! Plus my teacher is making us!

Aimee, age 12I liked this problem because it is a problem that makes you think. It is one of the hardest problems this year because of the range of numbers involved in the problem.

Ben, age 9I worked really hard to make this answer as perfect as I can. Please be honest as to what you write back and please give me some tips on what I can do to make it better.
