## 99.9% HAVE FAILED TO SOLVE THIS.

• Posted by a hidden member.
Okay, so I saw this earlier today on a friend's LinkedIn page and thought it might be fun for some of us here on RJ. I'm pretty sure I have the right answer but won't know for a day or two. Show only your answer (and/or any inappropriate comments) but NOT your work.

Let's prove that brawns and brains DO go together!

IF:
3=18
4=32
5=50
6=72
7=98
THEN:
10=?

google ( IF: 3=18 4=32 5=50 6=72 7=98 )

gives a few links, the first one:

200 - It seems too obvious I think I must be in the 99.90

I have the same thought. It seems way too obvious, but I naturally look for patterns. I used to constantly connect college courses and see how they'd connect with each other, like thoughts on using Latin language to understand words is similar to chemistry.

Has anyone seen How to Train a Dragon it's such a beautiful movie with a great meaning. So touching.

200 the difference between each number (3,4,5 etc) is (n+4)

No, it was 99.9% of 1st graders.

200 ... too easy hah.

This is the formula for the "problem"

x = x*x*2
7 = 7*7*2=98
10 = 10*10*2=200
15 = 15*15*2=450
17 = 578
20=800

200. I figured it out in less than a min.. Must be cause I'm Asian

Don't start that crap. I really feel all Asian men need to be their best to start to defy all the stereotypes attached to us.

We have something to PROVE purely based on the way we look. Become the best you can be Tokxic and I pray you will never need a white man to feel validated. Validate yourself and be the boss!

The way you're using * makes it look like an exponent. The proper way is using a •.

This isn't me being Asian this is me paying attention in school. ALSO I often ask the RJ community to correct my grammar if they see errors, and they often fail me

200, that is too easy though.

3=18
4=32
5=50
6=72
7=98
then
10=?

2x3 = 6 3x6= 18 3=18

2x4=8 4x8=32 4=32

2x5=10 5x10=50 5=50

etc......

2x10=20 10x20=200 10=200

etc......

2x10=20 10x20=200 10=200

This is what is fascinating: People have different perspectives on how to solve something and come up with the same solution. This is how I solved it:

3 (6) = 18
4 (8') = 32
5 (10) = 50
6 (12) = 72
7 (14) = 98
8 (16) = 128
9 (18') = 162
10 (20) = 200

I didn't click, until I had already solved the answer, which was rather easy, simply to see what pellaz had posted. 99.9% failure rate indeed - nonsense.

But providing the answer with a link is bad form. Koastal submitted the puzzle, it was up to him to confirm the answer, not pellaz. Just childish bad manners.

That is fascinating. I think it would be interesting to see how others solved the problem.
