# Countdown!

Today in Class 5 we got introduced to my favourite game – Countdown!

Can you get to this target number? Remember you can only use each number once …

100, 1, 6, 8, 7, 2

Target number: 314

The first three children with the correct answer will get a prize. Remember you must blog your working so I can see how you got to the answer.

If you haven’t quite got the answer and are just a few off the target number please post your working. You may be the closest if no one has got the target number!

Best of luck! The winners will be revealed on Wednesday morning…
