    Do you accept that the answer to the 2nd question is 22?
    d3vin looks to be doing correct.
    Yeah, I thought it was 22 as well. I love questions like that, they're good fun.

    I also like them, do you have links to such questions?

    You did very well!

    don't be hasty
    I still think it's C for some reason, what did you get?

    It is C. Look at the patterns of the boxes on the right.

    Nah, sometimes you get them in I.Q. tests which is where I've done them. some people are really good at spotting patterns in numbers and words.

    sorry I'm too thick, still don't see it, can you just tell me now?

    You are also one of those few people.

    I should have tried harder, but sadly i was too tempted to look at the other posts.

    Each row adds up to 19 as you said and there's a pattern of boxes on the right E.g. bottom right:

    4 5 7
    7 5 4 - it's almost diagonally symmetrical if you like. this pattern goes up

    ? 2 4
    4 2 1 - so ? is 1

    5 7 1
    ? 7 5 - so ? is also 1.

    This is hardly maths.

    One could argue that given a finite sequence it can be continued in any way (Wittgenstein's paradox)

    I think it's just a bit of fun mate, I don't think they expect you to question the validity of the question.

    I'm just being unnecessarily pedantic - uni maths will do that.

    I know others have probably written solns, but I'm happy I got these out. Didn't take too long.

    number 1) Look at the problem row by row. Notice that if 7 from the 1st row goes to 1 in the second then 1 from the first row goes to 7 in the second.

    2) Notice that if you add the digits of the numbers in one segment and multiply by 2 you get the number in the opposite segment.

    3) multiply the digits of the numbers on the LHS

    Haven't looked at other posts but if you still can't work them out I am pretty sure that the answers are C, A, B. For the first 2 don't bother looking at things mathematically, all you've got to do is look for patterns. In question 3, a diamond is telling you to multiply the digits together.

    The answers are C, A, C
    Last answer is actually B not C.

    The first one is nothing to do with maths it's just a pattern if you observe the two rows that are

    12457
    75421

    you can see that the other rows match each other in reverse with C put in

    so
    the answer is C

    Way to suck the fun out of an amusing puzzle.

    And I would argue this just like maths. One would probably tackle this problem in a similar way they might tackle a proof, D.E, or computer program: drawing on their previous experience and combining bits of their knowledge it to fit the problem at hand.
