Magic Vs and Magic Ys

03 May

In Maths we have been trying to solve this Magic Vs problem.  We discovered a number of solutions and discussed why they worked. Elliot, Louis and Archie went further and tried to investigate a Magic Y.  Using the numbers 1-7 can you make the three ‘arms’ of the Y total the same numberThe boys have found one solution, but can you find any others? Why not add your solutions to this post, or bring them into school to put on the maths wall? Are there other shapes which could be used for similar problems?
