### Constraints on operators

Tool to find solutions to the Mathador game. Mathador is a mental calculation game similar to countdown numbers rounds. The goal is to achieve a target number by performing mathematical operations.

### What are Mathador game's rules?

Players have to calculate a target number with the help of the 5 other given numbers and the 4 operators (addition, multiplication, subtraction, division). The principle is equivalent to that of countdown number game (but with 5 numbers instead of 6 and constraints on operators).

Example: Calculate 12 with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5:
Solutions : 4 x 3 = 12 or 3 + 4 + 5 = 12 (there are more answers)

### How to count score at Mathador?

Score depends on operators used in the calculation : addition : 1 point, subtraction : 2 points, multiplication : 1 point, division : 3 points. Using the four operators (and so the five numbers), each once, is worth 13 points and is called mathador.

Example: 5 x 4 = 20; 3 - 1 = 2; 20 / 2 = 10; 10 + 2 = 12 is worth 13 points
