Hi Everyone,

We hope you have had and are having a lovely Easter. Why not try the maths challenge below to see how sharp we all still are? 

The bags contain 1s  3s  5s and 7s

Using 10 of any combination of numbers, find as many ways as you can to make 37! Please show us all your answers and combinations in the comments below. Remember to explain any findings.

Happy Investigating!

Maybe you are right Jack. Does anyone else think that they can work it out or that it is impossible?

This is impossible because you cannot make an odd total like 37 by adding odd numbers like 1,3,5,7, even number of times (in this case 10 numbers).
