  1. Nice question Daniel.
    Should the directions be changed from “You may use the numbers 0-9” to “You may use the digits 0-9”?

  2. “You may use the numbers 0-9 once in any of the blank boxes. (The answer of 84 does not eliminate the 8 or the 4.)”

    My class just worked through this Open Middle problem. We noticed that you included 02 x 42 as a possible answer. We read the directions as meaning that we could only use 0-9 once in the equation. Did we read too deeply into it? Also, do 01 x 84 work and 03 x 28 work?

    Thank you so much!
