Jersey Maths

Published almost 2 years ago by Johnny Baker

In 2016, Romania tried to channel children's love of soccer into an interest in mathematics.

This interesting idea made its debut in a range of sports.

Jersey Maths

This team took the field against Spain wearing warm-ups labeled with maths problems that replaced their jersey numbers.

The story doesn't tell us if they used those jerseys during the actual game, but it does raise the question:

Can you make the numbers 1 - 23 for your own team's jerseys using 2 numbers and one operation?

Looking for more of a challenge? Try doing it with three numbers and two operations.
