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.

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

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).

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.
