Play A Math Game – Double, Triple, Halve, Combine

Player one chooses a number and then doubles that number.

  • 33 doubled is 66

Player two takes the number that resulted from the doubling and triples it.

  • 66 tripled is 198

Player three divides the result of the tripling in half.

  • 198 divided by 2 is 99

Player four combines the digits of the new number.

  • 9 + 9 = 18

Player five starts over again by doubling the new number.

  • 18 doubled is 36
  • 36 tripled is 108
  • 108 divided by 2 is 54
  • 5 + 4 = 9
