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)
Score depends on operators used in the calculation : addition :
|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
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.
