Workshop Wednesday: Math Card Games

My sweet friend Jivey is hosting her Workshop Wednesday again...Math Card Games!
One of my favorite card games is 24.
There are many different 24 games and each set has 3 levels of difficulty-this is the single digit set.
You can add, subtract, multiply and divide, but you do not have to use all four operations. You have to use all four numbers on the card, but use each number only once. For each card there may be several ways to solve for 24. I accept all answers and encourage them to come up with different solutions. Let's try some!
 First card (white dot-easy)
7 - 4= 3
5 + 3= 8
3 x 8= 24
Second card (2 dots-medium)
7 + 5= 12
3 - 1= 2
12 x 2= 24
Third card (3 dots-difficult)
You try this one! Leave answer in the comments section if you solve!!!
I use this whole group and with partners. It's a great way to get your students thinking and start that brain up for math time! My kids beg to play 24!

Go check out some other great card games with Jivey!
