Quandaries
and Queries 

Hi my name is Rebecca and I am in grade 6 my maths question is use the numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 and 7 place each number in a circle so each line adds up to 12. There are seven circles, six on the outside and one in the middle. Each number lines up with the middle number and the outside numbers line up with the one directly across from it as if a line was going through the middle number circle. Thankyou 

Hi Rebecca, I looked at the list of numbers that you have
and I know that you are looking for an arrangement with 6 numbers around the outside of a circle and one in the middle. You want to line up triples of numbers, two on the outside and the one in the middle so that the sum is always 12. What I see from the list above is that:
You are left with 4 and 8+4=12. Hence if you put the 4 in the middle and pair the 1 and 7, the 2 and 6 and the 3 and 5 you will get what you want. Penny
