    Over the years, Channel 4 viewers have tuned in as Countdown maths gurus Carol Vorderman and Rachel Riley give us head-scratching maths problems. But some of the Countdown rounds have been solved – somewhat unbelievably – within moments.

    Terrific George

    In October 2014, George was tasked with using 1, 2, 25 and 100, as well as 75 and 50, to get to 940.

    George managed it by doing:

    75 x 25 = 1875

    He then added one for 1876, before multiplying by 50 for 93800, and divided by 100 to give 938, before adding 2.

    “Well done!” exclaimed Rachel Riley.

    “Terrific George,” said Nick Hewer.

    ‘Where did we find this guy?’

    To get 813, Carol tasked two contestants with using 1, 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100.

    John said he had 813, using:

    75 – 10 = 65

    65 x 25 = 1625

    1625 + 1 = 1626

    1626 x 50 = 81300

    81300 divided by 100 = 813

    “Where did we find this guy?” asked Richard Whiteley.
