## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### What is the Mathador game? (Definition)

Mathador is a calculation game similar to the account is good. It is used in schools for learning mental arithmetic. The object of the game is to obtain a target number by performing mathematical operations.

### What are the rules of the Mathador game?

Players have to calculate a target number with the help of the 5 other given numbers/digits and the 4 mathematics 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: $4 \times 3 = 12$ or $3 + 4 + 5 = 12$ (there are more answers)

### How to count scores at Mathador?

Score depends on operators used in the calculation:

 Addition $+$ 1 point Subtraction $-$ 2 points Multiplication $\times$ 1 point Division $\div /$ 3 points

Using the four operators (and so the five numbers) in a result, each appearing once, is worth 13 points and is called mathador.

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

### What is a Mathador coup?

The mathador coup is a point bonus if the player uses the 4 operators in his calculation (+,-,*,/)

### How to use negative numbers?

Negative numbers are ignored as they are unnecessary, the calculation is identical with a positive value except that the subtractions and additions are exchanged (applying a subtraction on a negative number is equivalent to applying an addition to a positive number).

### How to play with more than 5 numbers (6 or more)?

The original Mathador game does not offer this variant but the dcode countdown number game solver is able to find solutions to calculations with N numbers.
