Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts

Right from the outset, you should be aware that (at each step) there are only two ways that you can go: (1) down or (2) left or right. If moving left or right takes you back to from where you came, then that is a waste of time.

The number that you're on is one (1). From here, your two options are:

1. Move one step to your right and you step on zero. This number is less than one (but not half of one), so it is not allowed.

2. Move one step down. This is number six (6). Ask yourself if this number is greater than one, and the answer is "yes", so that move is allowed.

Remember, you are not allowed to go up and you cannot move diagonally, which leaves your second option as your only option.

You are on number six (6).

You are not allowed to move up or diagonally, which rules out moving to numbers one (1), zero (0) or seven (7).

Your two options are to (a) move down to number two (2) or (b) move right to number three (3). The question then is "is either number greater than six (6)?", and the answer is "no". This would normally rule both out as an option. So, the next question is "is either number exactly half of six? To find out what is half of six, we divide six by the number two. Six divided by two = three. This means that you would be allowed to move to your right to number three.

You were on number three (3)

Let's forget about the diagonal moves and the upward moves as they're not allowed. Let's also forget about the move to the left (to number six (6)) as that won't help you move forward - you just came from there. That leaves two options

- down to number seven (7) or

- right to number five (5).

This is interesting because both numbers fit within the rules. In other words, both numbers are greater than the one that you're on so, which is the right way to go?

What you will need to do now is to think forward. What that means is "once you move onto the next number (after this one), do you have any options for another move"? First, let's check the option to go down to number seven. From there, you can move left to number two (2), you can move down to number five or you can move right to number five again. All three of these moves are to a number that is less than the one that you're on. Therefore, they would not be allowed. Also, none of those numbers are exactly half of seven (7 divided by 2 = 3 and a half).

That leaves moving right to number five. Your options after that would be (a) down to another number five or (b) move right to number six. The move (b), to number six, is a move to a higher number which means it is a proper move. Since there is a possible next move, you must go to the five.

That leaves moving right to number five. Your options after that would be (a) down to another number five or (b) move right to number six. The move (b), to number six, is a move to a higher number which means it is a proper move. Since there is a possible next move, you must go to the five.

You are on number five (5). And, if you are standing here, then you would have already figured out your next move while you were on the previous move. In other words, a move to the right to number six (6) is a move to a higher number, which makes it a valid move. The move down to five is not, because five is not a greater number, so that move would not be allowed.

At present you are standing on number six (6). Moving diagonally and up is not allowed and we indicated that moving left (the direction from which you came) will always be a poor option.

That leaves moving right to number three (3) or moving down to number one (1). Both numbers are lower than number six so they, normally, wouldn't be allowed but... number three is exactly half of six (6 divide by 2 = 3), which means that moving to the right, one square, is a safe move.

You are standing on number three (3). Really, you have only one option here, going down to number four (4) which, fortunately, is a number that is greater than three.

Your other options included - going up (not allowed), going diagonally (not allowed), going back to the left (a waste of time, remember) and going right... oh wait, there is nothing at all to the right.

Your other options included - going up (not allowed), going diagonally (not allowed), going back to the left (a waste of time, remember) and going right... oh wait, there is nothing at all to the right.

Rather than repeating all the moves that are disallowed - going up and moving diagonally - and constantly repeating that going back to from where you came is a waste of time, you should be familiar with how this works now, so I will only deal with the "possible" options moving forward.

You are sitting on square number four (4).

You can move left but that will take you to number one (1), which is a number that is less than four (but not half of four) and, as a result, is not a valid move. That leaves moving down to number six (6), which is greater than four and is, therefore, a safe move.

You are sitting on square number four (4).

You can move left but that will take you to number one (1), which is a number that is less than four (but not half of four) and, as a result, is not a valid move. That leaves moving down to number six (6), which is greater than four and is, therefore, a safe move.

From number six (6), if we were to move down, we would step on number one (1), which is a lower number (but not half of six) ... and you are not allowed in there. But, if you move to your left you are stepping on number eight (8), a number that is greater than six and you will be allowed to pass.

We are now standing on number eight (8).

The first of the two moves that are possible, is moving down to number two (2). We know that two is less than eight but, is two an exact half of eight. Let's check... (8 divided by 2 = 4), so no, two is not a half of eight, so this won't be a move that we are allowed to make.

That leaves us with moving left. Going that way we will step on number four (4) and, whilst four is less than eight, we just showed (above) that four is also exactly half of eight... so we can move that way.

That leaves us with moving left. Going that way we will step on number four (4) and, whilst four is less than eight, we just showed (above) that four is also exactly half of eight... so we can move that way.

We have arrived at number four (4), so, where to from here?

If we go down we land on number three (3) and you know that three is not greater than four, which means we cannot go there.

Let's move to the left now and, in doing so, we will arrive at number five (5). By a whisker, five is greater than four, which means that we are allowed to move there.

If we go down we land on number three (3) and you know that three is not greater than four, which means we cannot go there.

Let's move to the left now and, in doing so, we will arrive at number five (5). By a whisker, five is greater than four, which means that we are allowed to move there.

You have landed on the square with number five (5) on it and, once again, we have two moves that are both going to be legal moves - going left to number nine (9) and down to number six (6). The reason why they're legal is that both numbers are greater than number five. This means that, for the second time, we have to look further forward, to see whether or not the move we can make another move, after this one, that will also be legal or safe to do so.

Let's start by moving to the left to number nine. After this, we can't go left, because there's nothing there. That means going down and by doing that we will arrive at number five. Uh oh! we can't do that. Why? We can't do it because five is not greater than nine and that is a move that is not allowed.

OK then, what about moving down to number six? From number six we would have three options for our next move. (a) Moving left to number five, but five would be lower than six... so, no, that won't work (b) we could move down to number one (1), but that number is also lower than six... so, no again. That leaves us with option (c), moving right to number three (3). Oh no, three is also lower than six but, hang on a minute, isn't three exactly half of six? Let's check (6 divided by 2 = 3). Yes it is, so we can make that move.

Let's start by moving to the left to number nine. After this, we can't go left, because there's nothing there. That means going down and by doing that we will arrive at number five. Uh oh! we can't do that. Why? We can't do it because five is not greater than nine and that is a move that is not allowed.

OK then, what about moving down to number six? From number six we would have three options for our next move. (a) Moving left to number five, but five would be lower than six... so, no, that won't work (b) we could move down to number one (1), but that number is also lower than six... so, no again. That leaves us with option (c), moving right to number three (3). Oh no, three is also lower than six but, hang on a minute, isn't three exactly half of six? Let's check (6 divided by 2 = 3). Yes it is, so we can make that move.

In our previous move we had to look forward so most of what we do here has already been explained, so I will be brief. A move to the left (to number five (5)) or a move down (to number one (1)), won't work because they are both lower numbers than the number you're on (six (6)), however, moving to the right, to number three (3), is good because three is exactly half of six.

You are now on number three (3). If you were to take a step to the right you would be stepping on number two (2). Would that be allowed? No it wouldn't, because two is neither greater than three not half of three.

But, can we go down? That move would land us on number five, which is greater than three... making it a perfect move.

But, can we go down? That move would land us on number five, which is greater than three... making it a perfect move.

We are at number five (5) and, once again, we have three possible moves. Before we look at those options, what is a half of five? Let's see... (5 divided by 2 = 2 and a half). It is not a whole number and we only have whole numbers on our grid. From that we can safely say that we won't find a number to move to that is exactly half of five. That also means that the only square we can move to is one with a number that is greater than five. There is another lesson here. Five is an odd number, which also means that if we try to divide it by two we will not get an answer that is also a whole number. Test it and see for yourself, try another odd number like seven (7) or eleven (11) and see if that is true.

Move to the left and you land on one (1). Move to right and you land on number eight (8). Move down and you land on number two (2). Of those only the eight is greater than five, which means you have to move to the right.

Move to the left and you land on one (1). Move to right and you land on number eight (8). Move down and you land on number two (2). Of those only the eight is greater than five, which means you have to move to the right.

We're almost home. We are on a square that has the number eight (8) on it. If we move to the right we will end up on number five (5). If we move down we land on number four (4). Both numbers are less than number eight but we are saved because... (8 divided by 2 = 4). This means that number four is exactly half of eight and it is safe for us to move there.

You have one more move to make. You can move to the left because two (2) is exactly half of four (4 divide by 2 = 2). However, if you move to the right you are stepping onto number eight (8) which is the finish line. Common sense will tell you to move to the right. I will even let you jump... but only for joy.
