Rodney has been throwing darts for hours to see if he can score exactly 100. The dart board consists of 6 rings, 40 points for a Bullseye, 39 points, 26 points, 23 points, 17 points, and 16 points. So far he’s hit 17+17+17+24 = 75 points, but now there is no way he can toss more darts to raise his score to 100. Can you find a pattern of darts that will add up to exactly 100? You may use as many darts as you like.

 

Hint: Try first for a score of 50
