Final Scores at the PrimeBowl (Posted on 2007-11-28) Difficulty: 3 of 5
1. What is the highest score you can obtain in a standard game of bowling if your cumulative score in each of the ten frames is required to be a prime number?

2. What is the lowest score you can obtain in a standard game of bowling if your cumulative score in each of the ten frames is required to be a prime number and for each throw you knock down a prime number of pins?

The next two questions refer to 3-6-9 bowling. The difference in 3-6-9 bowling and the standard game is the 3rd, 6th and 9th frame already have strikes recorded.

3. What is the highest score you can obtain in a game of 3-6-9 bowling if your cumulative score in each of the ten frames is required to be a prime number?

4. What is the lowest score you can obtain if your cumulative score in each of the ten frames is required to be a prime number and for each throw (excluding the pre-recorded throws) you knock down a prime number of pins?

The first score sheet represents Games #1 and #2.
The second is for use with Games #3 and #4.
