Year six have been playing this game.

Can you beat our record of 17 numbers connected by multiples and factors?

Our new record is 21 and we think this is the most you can get? Can you work out why?

dhastingsPost authorThat’s brilliant 🙂

MaisaraI have finnaly got 21 numbers!:]

dhastingsPost authorWell done 🙂

Manahil, katrina and Maisarawe got 20 we have been trying to make 21 but we found so many other ways to make 20 🙁

Ellie21 is the most because all my numbers left were prime- 13, 17 and 19. None of these primes can be doubled to make a number on the list so this is the most.

MaisaraYes, you’re right Ellie:)

dhastingsPost authorWell done, I am so impressed with how you keep trying to get longer strings and don’t easily give up. Great attitude and use of learning powers.
