## Game 24 (3-30 thru 4-5)

This is a fascinating game in which players pick a card with four numbers. Players have to rearrange the numbers using addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division to result in 24. There are usually multiple ways to solve each set of numbers.

On an attached file, I listed all of the number combinations in Levels 1, 2, and 3 in the actual game.

Also, I have attached a file on which players can write their numbers and rearrange them.

## Knight Lines (3-23 thru 3-29)
