19. 19. Cross number 1 2 3 4 Across: 1 – A square number 2 – A square palindromic Number 3 – A cube number Down 1 – 23 x 5 2 – A multiple of 13
20. 20. Cross number 1 2 Across: 1 – A square number 2 – A square palindromic Number 3 – A cube number Down 1 – 23 x 5 2 – A multiple of 13 1 6 1 2 1 5 7
21. 21. Missing signs (37 ------ 21) ------ 223 = 1000 (756 ------ 18) ------ 29 = 1218 27 ------ (36 ------ 18) = 675 31 ------ (87 ------ 19) = 2108 Each box represents a missing sign ( +, -, x, or ÷)
22. 22. Missing signs (37 -- x -- 21) -- + -- 223 = 1000 (756 -- ÷-- 18) – x -- 29 = 1218 27 -- + -- (36 – x -- 18) = 675 31 -- x -- (87 -- _ -- 19) = 2108 Each box represents a missing sign ( +, -, x, or ÷)
23. 23. Logic “Aha”! 6 Questions Each Q = 2.5 minutes Total time = 15 minutes
24. 24. Colors and names There are 3 gentlemen in a meeting: Mr. Yellow, Mr. Green and Mr. Brown. They are wearing yellow, green and brown ties.
