Car Games

Some Variations on "The Number Plate Game"...

The Original: spot all the numbers from 1 to 100 (in order) on car number plates. The digits must be in the correct order and not separated.

Fibonacci: spot all the fibonacci numbers (stop at 144 - otherwise it gets too difficult!). The same rules apply.

Hint - the Fibonacci sequence of numbers works like this. Each term of the sequence is the sum of the previous two terms. It starts 1; 1; 2; 3...

Prime Numbers: spot all the prime numbers between 0 and 100. 

Hint - a prime number is only divisible by one and itself. 1 doesn't count as a prime number.

Powers of Two:
Powers of Three:

The variations are endless. After some experimentation however, I suggest you stop when you get to three digits. Otherwise it takes so long to get the next number in the sequence that everyone loses interest!

Happy long weekend! I wish you a festive lack of traffic.
