Last night I spent the evening with some of my family who live nearby. I cooked a big pot of chicken and sausage gumbo, and we had a fantastic time catching up.

As I sat down on the couch after devouring a sugar cookie for dessert, my uncle handed me one of those big legal note pads. On it was a brain teaser that a friend had sent him via email. In my sugared brain fog, I worked through it and thought I would share it with you.

tom says

the total of first number times it self and the first number times the second number eq5uals the third number. i.e. (3*3) = 9 + (3*4)= 12 = 21 then (6*6)= 36 + (6*7) = 42 = 78

Dont make it so complicated folks…just add the first two numbers, derive a sum, and multiply that sum by the very first number of each particular equation…example, 2+3=5×2=10…….3+4=7×3=21……and sure as shootin’….6+7=13×6=voila,78…

Answer is 78

Why make it complicated tom just add the first two numbers together arrive at the sum then multiply the sum by the very first number of that set…2+3=5xthe first no.2=10…

3+4=7x the first no.3=21 etc. ect.

Differences of 11,15,19, so 23 + 55 = 78.

Could be posted above.

Don’t mak

78

answer should be 8

x,y,z

formula= z/[x+y]=x

6,7,z

equation= z/13=6 -_switched_around_- 13*6=answer or a

So answer or a=78
