Don’t forget, within Mathletics, you can send me voice or text messages if you are stuck or just want to say hello. I promise to respond but not straight away!

3. Ducking and Diving

Your vessel, the Starship Diophantus, has become damaged in deep space. Your valuable fuel cells have been scattered across space. As you collect them, your number will go up by 1. Unfortunately, you have been ambushed by alien spaceships! They will only be able to harm you if they have a number which is a multiple of your number.
