24 game, The best game for learning mental arithmetic

The slightly older ones among us will probably still remember the 24 game. Do you recognize them again? They used to be little puzzles in a bag of crisps. Do you know what the 24 game is? It's a simple arithmetic game with four numbers on it. At school it is one of the most fun ways to learn mental arithmetic properly with the 24 game.

How does the 24 game work?

  • There are 4 numbers on each card.
  • You have to use each number once.
  • The result of the calculation is always 24.
  • You can add, subtract, divide and multiply.

An example:
The card with a 1, 4, 5, and 5. How do you make the outcome of this 24? For example, this can be done in the following way:

24 game 1

4 x 5 = 20
20 + 5 = 25
25 – 1 = 24.

You have now used all the numbers once and you have chosen to use x, + and –. 

We have made the maps for you for various difficulty levels. A card with 1 dot is easy and a card with three dots is the most difficult. In our free e-book, see below, we have provided one answer per 24 tickets. There are often several possible answers. But that way you always have a solution. Wishing you lots of arithmetic and puzzle fun.

The 24 game is ideal to use in your classroom. The children learn good mental arithmetic in a playful way. We have made the example cards according to a level of difficulty. A card with 1 dot is easy and a card with three dots is the most difficult. We also often made these cards with the two-digit game 24. So something for every arithmetic level in the class.
