    This is hardly maths.

    One could argue that given a finite sequence it can be continued in any way (Wittgenstein's paradox)
    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.
    Also human life is just one finite sequence. Human life encompasses the study of mathematics.

    Last answer is actually B not C.

    I don't see how it is 30 not 56?

    49 - 36 4 x 9 = 36
    25 - 10 2 x 5 = 10
    28 - 16 2 x 8 = 16
    78 - ? 7 x 8 = 56

    Thats seems to be the process

    Thats seems to be the process
    7 * 8 = 56
    5 * 6 = 30

    The process needs to be done twice, see the image again.

    I don't see anywhere where it is suggested the process is to be repeated again?
    It seems to be asking for the next number which would be 56?

    See the image again, there are 2 diamonds next to 78.
