## The 24 Game (+-x/^!) with a Target Number of 24

After playing hundreds of rounds of Target Number last week, where the target number was randomly selected from 1-10, this week we increased the challenge with The 24 Game. Here the target number always is 24 and each game card has four numbers. The object of the game is to make 24 using all four numbers on a card.

## Target Number (use all binary operations to = target card)

Preparation: Take a deck of cards and separate out all of the face cards (eliminate Jacks, Queens, and Kings);You should have 40 remaining cards from Ace to 10 in four suits. Ace counts as one.

## Pick's Theorem Method for finding the Area of a Polygon on a dot grid

It is relatively simple to calculate the area of a rectangle. A three by three square will have an area of 9 square units calculated by multiplying 3x3. A four by five rectangle has an area of twenty square units calculated by multiplying 4x5. A 4x5 triangle has an area of 10 square units calculated by multiplying 4x5 and dividing that rectangle by 2.
