 Help with an Arithmetic/algebra equation game   « on: Apr 5th, 2008, 2:08am » Quote Modify

Hello,

There are 2 arithmetic games which I need to solve but they are too hard. In the first one, you need to complete an equation by picking numbers from 1-9. The first levels are not that hard, but they get very hard as the game advances. Here is the link to the game:

Is there any program that would make me solve this game easy? Or perhaps an universal method?

The 2 game is similar only that you have 4 cards of different values, and you have to use this 4 cards and arithmetic signs to make a formula that gives 24. Ace is 1, Jack is 11, Queen is 12, King is 13. You have to use all 4 cards. Here is the link to this game:

As for the first game, there must be a program or method to solve this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why do you need to solve them?

I tried them.  I ended both games.  I submitted the score as guest.  You just need some mental arithmetic skills.

Oh, you know how it is with puzzles; always some madman threatening to kill you if you don't solve the puzzle and escape. I'm sure it's something like that.
