This is the blog for 24theory, a website dedicated to solving 24 the math game. I am going to use this blog to document the progresses.

Recently I decided to move my 24 the math game solver and solutions from ocf.berkeley.edu here. Not that there is anything wrong with The OCF, I love the ocf and the idea of independent student-run services. The only concern is that the ocf service is not always as stable as I’d like it to be.

And I will put more effort in reducing more redundancies in the solutions. Another thing to do in the future is to code up an interactive solver in HTML5.

  1. And a year later, we have 500 unique visitors a day with a bunch of math 24 games to play with. Mobile apps have been downloaded more than 10,000 times in 3 months.

    It’s a good run.

  2. I love the site and the training and entertainment it provides.
    There is a typo in the title on the web-page: nubmers instead of numbers
    4 Nubmers! game – 4nums, best math game online .


  3. love this game and am absolutely addicted I also noticed the spelling mistake as my mum is a gernalist and I have grown up with words which is probably why I love this game so much I got into it when my headmaster started a game 24 club and I wandered if they did it online (because we used cards)and what do you know they do!

  4. Hi,

    Great site!

    If I could suggest a small addition: On the Solver page, after printing the possible solutions for a puzzle, could you also list where in the ranking of difficulty that particular puzzle currently appears (i.e. a grep of the list at 4nums.com/game/difficulties/)? It would save me having to check it separately for those puzzles I just can’t figure out.
