Digits rewards players with up to 3-stars; you’ll get 3-stars for getting to the target exactly, 2-stars if you are within 10 of the target, and 1-star if you are within 25 of the target. Players can start a new operation by selecting a different number, and fractions or negative numbers are not accepted. New puzzles are released daily at midnight.
When working on a target from Digits, one of the first things you can do is to look for factor pairs of the target number, which can sometimes clue you into the direction you need to go. This is often the last operation of the solution, and you’ll use other operations to get to the numbers you need for the final factor pair.
