This game is almost identical to

Speed Racer 3

The instructions are written below

and are almost identical also

except for the bits

in RED:

There are TWO cases:

HARD and EASY

9 - 6 is EASY

It is ABOVE ZERO

We know the answer is 2.

6 - 9 is HARD

It goes BELOW ZERO

We don't know what the answer is.

We need a trick to work it out!

Here is the trick:

**ADD the COMPLEMENT**

The complement of 9 is 1

So we ADD 1 instead:

6 - 9 becomes 6 + 1

in this game we will go one step further

and add the 6 + 1

to make 7

So 4 - 7 would become 4 + 3

5 - 8 would become 5 + 2

and so on

**EASY Example**

The number plate says "8 - 7"

The answer is easy: it is 1

It is ABOVE zero

To score:

Swerve into the "1" Lane

and crash the barrier!

If it is EASY

you score the same as in Speed Racer 3.

8 - 7 = 1

would be the final answer

in both games.

**HARD Example**

The number plate says "1 - 8"

Who knows what the answer to THAT is!!!???

It goes BELOW zero.

It is HARD.

** **

When it is HARD just

ADD the COMPLEMENT

Instead of TAKING AWAY 8

ADD the COMPLEMENT of 8

So

1 **-
8**

becomes

1** + 2**

Swerve into the barrier

that says "1 + 2"

**We go one more step.**

**We actually ADD the 1
+ 2 **

**to get 3.**

**...EVERYTHING**

**GOES **

**DARK**

**You are driving in
the dark...**

** **

**The number plate says
"1 + 2"**

**The answer to that is
3**

**Crash into the "3"
Barrier**

**to score a point!**

** **

Each time you crash through a barrier

your score goes up

**THIS HAS CHANGED**

**You only need to
crash through ****8**** barriers**

**with only 1 mistake**

**to go to the next
level**

When you succeed at this level

WRITE DOWN YOUR CODE

for Desert Racer 5.

*In the example above *

*the code is the word "max".*

**Your name**

**+
**

**Your code**

is the key to

opening Desert Racer 5.

Don't lose it!
