# Number Puzzles

 Number puzzles are a challenging collection of puzzles in which you have to make all of the numbers within the given range (e.g. 0 through 9) by using only certain integers (e.g. 2,4,6 and 8) and basic arithmetic operations (+, -, and /) along with any combination of parenthesis. The range of numbers is typically 0 through 9 but may be different for some of the puzzles. The constraints on the numbers may be: using only 1,2 and 3 (Easy as 1-2-3) ; using only even integers (Even’s Only); using 5 five times (Five 5’s); to name a few. These puzzles are GREAT practice for order of operations as well as basic number sense. Remember, these can be challenging for younger students but the reward is worth it!

 use only the numbers 1,2 and 3 once and only once to make the numbers 0-9 use only the even numbers 2,4,6 and 8 once and only once to make the numbers 0-9 use only the even numbers 3,5,7 and 9 once and only once to make the numbers 0-9 use only the number 5 exactly five times to make the numbers 0-9 use only the prime numbers 2,3,5 and 7 once and only once to make the numbers 0-9
