"If you are not up to answering the questions quickly enough you could start by just doing the left column. If you can manage that progress to the left two columns until you build up enough speed to try all of the columns. Each time you start the clock the questions change so you do not need to worry about repeating yourself! Enjoy."

"How can I embed the code for Beat The Clock into my Wordpress blog?
Would like to make your games a feature, but better than a link."

"Thanks for your question Andy. It can be done by using an inline frame. Here is the code you will need:
<iframe id="I1" name="I1" src="https://www.transum.org/Maths/Activity/Beat_The_Clock/" style="width: 963px; height: 970px">
It needs copying and pasting as text (not visual)."

"Can you please add level 10 and 11, I have finished 9 so many times and I love this game but it is getting boring doing only level 9 all the time, I love challenges so can you please add a level 10 and 11.
[Transum: Well Asmi, if Level 9 is too easy for you I have now added a Level 10. Let's see if you can complete Level 10 before I start thinking about a Level 11. Keep up the good work.]"
