If I had a 3 and a 4 on one side and three 2s on the other side, what do I need to add to make it balance and where?

I hang a 10 on one side. How many different ways can you find of hanging numbers on the other side to make it balance?

They had entered the caves earlier that day. As soon as they entered the underground labyrinth they had been plunged into darkness, with the only light coming from the frothing pools of orange lava beneath. She could hear the occasional plop, as bubbles of toxic gas burst their way to the surface, filling the cave with a nose-stinging stench.

The girl and her young companion bravely headed out across the stepping-stones, trying to ignore the peril below. Their adventure was only just beginning…

You need to choose any four consecutive numbers and place them in a row with a bit of a space between them, like this:
4, 5, 6, 7
When you've chosen your consecutive numbers, stick with those same ones for quite a while, exploring ideas before you change them in any way. Now place + and − signs in between them, something like this:

4 + 5 - 6 + 7
4 - 5 + 6 + 7

and so on until you have found all the possibilities. Are you sure you've got them all?  You should include one using all +'s and one that includes all −'s.

Now work out the answers to all your calculations (e.g. 4 - 5 + 6 + 7 = 12 and so on).

Now try other sets of four consecutive numbers and look carefully at the sets of answers that you get each time.

Are you surprised by anything you notice?
