Notes

All daily items change at midnight GMT.

  • HALVE   divide by 2 (e.g. 10 ÷ 2 = 5)
  • DOUBLE  multiply by 2 (e.g. 10 x 2 = 20)
  • SQUARE  times by itself (e.g. 10 x 10 = 100)
  • CUBE    times by itself twice (e.g. 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000)
  • x 3/5   find three fifths (e.g. 1/5 of 15 = 3, so 3/5 = 9)
  • x 21/3  find two and a third (e.g. 2 1/3 of 15 = 2 x 15 + 5 = 35)
  • x 10%   find 10% (e.g. 10% of 80 = 8)
  • √       find the square root (e.g. the square root of 100 is 10)

I have deliberately chosen not include the answers. You can use a calculator to see the value at each stage of the calculation.

Would you like a (free) Sudoku for a small, local, community newsletter. Or a monthly puzzle for your company's bulletin. Or a range of puzzles for your local newspaper? Or puzzles for a project of any size? KNS Puzzles was set up by my brother (Julian), specifically to provide commercial access to all of my content (current and old). If it involves BrainBashers puzzles, he will try his best to help. Take a look at my contact page for more information.
