Sharon was playing darts. She threw six darts and all of them hit the target. Which of the following could be her score?

The target goes from 9 in the center, then 7, 5 , 3, and 1 on the outside ring.

Possible Scores: 4 17 56 28 29 31 50 8

Please give a quick explanation.

  • Math -

    You have six darts, each hitting an odd number, so the answer must be an even number, since adding any two odd numbers gives you an even number. With six darts all hitting the target, you cannot get a score less than 6 nor more than 54. I'll let you figure out about the scores that remain.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
