Each power = one point (1, 4, 16, and 27 are each worth 1 Pt. {argue for 16 to be worth more!})
A perfect number = 2 points
42 = 2 points
47 = 2 points
The highest/lowest range (largest # - smallest #) = one point
Highest/lowest total (by addition) each = 1 point
Total is also scored using these guidelines.
