    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=?

    sorry but doing the googles for an answer:

    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.

    Who held a gun to your head and made you click the link?

    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

    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 icon_cry.gif

    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. icon_razz.gif

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