The Proof! Math Puzzle Challenges play exactly like the
classic Proof! card game,
except here you're looking for a specific type of equation,
rather than just any equation at all.

First,
**read the title**
of the challenge to understand what you're looking for. You can click the
for a more detailed explanation.

Then, start solving it by
**clicking a card, then a math symbol, and then another card**
to combine those cards using that operation. Once you create
**two or more cards with matching values**
(called a pair, triplet, etc.)
that fit the bill for this challenge, you'll win!

Full instructions
for the classic game can be found here.

If you're stuck, first try clicking the
near the title of the challenge for a more detailed explanation
and an example of what you're looking for.

Show Hint
When looking for pairs using only three cards each, a useful trick is to make good use of the square root sign. Since that symbol operates on only one card, you can make a new number without needing to bring other cards into the mix. For example, here you could make a pair of 5's with √25 = 4 + 1. Try that sort of thing in different ways now!

From the makers of Proof! comes the brand new math game, Adsumudi! Find the secret math path to Adsumudi's answer on each card by adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing the other numbers. Find it first and collect the card. Five cards wins!
