if a dart must hit the scoring section the answers 3, if it just has to hit the board, the answer is 0, so lowest score you can('t) hit would be 0 i guess.

So a triple 20, another triple 20, and a nine would give you 172, so that is a possible score with three darts...

You start from zero, then throw three darts, which must hit.
What is then the lowest possible score you can't hit.
The answer will come to you, if you calculate a couple possibilities, but really im looking for a simple explanation or formula for the correct answer.

So is there a number lower than 172 that you can get?
have you worked out the answer?

as the highest 'impossible' score. If that's what the question was.

143 = 51(triple 19, bull, double 18)
166 or 172.
