For this problem, can you figure out what the missing number is?

will reveal submitted answers in 1-2 days.

Have a couple more puzzles to post in the next 12-24 hrs…

2?

6 completes the sequence in the yellow ovals (4..5..6) as well as the red ovals (72/18 = 4 95/19 = 5 84/14 = ?)

i think one answer is 6. Explanation: 1) In the first ellipse 72/18= 4 2)In the second 95/19= 5 3) So in the third 84/14= 6

the top two numbers divided by the bottom two numbes, is the overall top number, so 6 would be the answer.

A B C D # = (D – A +C) * B 1. (8 – 7 + 1) * 2 = 4 2. (9 – 9 + 1) * 5 = 5 3. (4 – 8 + 1) * 4 = -12

-12

How about -12?

(((8-7)+1)*2) = 4 (((9-9)+1)*5) = 5 (((4-8)+1)*4) = -12

..X.. A…B C…D

X = ((D-A)+C)*B

4 = ((8-7)+1)*2 5 = ((9-9)+1)*5 -12 = ((4-8)+1)*4

The answer could be -12.

Formula is:

(Lower Right – Upper Left + Lower Left) * Upper Right

First ovoid = (8 – 7 + 1) * 2 = 2 * 2 = 4 Second ovoid = (9 – 9 + 1) * 5 = 1 * 5 = 5 Third ovoid = (4 – 8 + 1) * 4 = -3 * 4 = -12

6

The missing number is 6. These are division problems, 72/18 = 4, 95/19 = 5, and 84/14 = 6.

Take each of the top and bottom two red numbers as two digits and divide the bottom number by the top, so:

72 / 18 = 4 95 / 19 = 5 84 / 14 = 6

The top two numbers divide by two bottom 72/18=4, 95/19=5, 84/14=6. So the answer is 6.

6 is the answer we originally had in mind, but as Joe, Rupert, Shawn & Ray point out, -12 works too!

Take the ones digit of the product of the top left and right red numbers as the yellow number and then the answer is w

7*2 = 14 —— 4 9*5 = 45 —— 5 8*4 = 32 —— 2

Its 7 EX: (7-1+8) = 2 *2 = 4 (9-1+9) = 1 *5 = 5 (8-1-4) = 3 *4 = 12

Yea just goes to show that many can get a wrong answer on an IQ test when in fact they came to another correct answer because they thought a little deeper. Too bad my math skills stink ;-)

11

another answer: 0 also.. explanation: take lower semi circle numbers; 8-1=7 7-3=4 9-1=8 8-3=5 ????answer???? 4-1=3 3-3=0

jason| Guest October 1st, 2007 - 7:50 amthe top two numbers divided by the bottom two numbes, is the overall top number, so 6 would be the answer.

Joe| Guest October 1st, 2007 - 8:57 amA B

C D

# = (D – A +C) * B

1. (8 – 7 + 1) * 2 = 4

2. (9 – 9 + 1) * 5 = 5

3. (4 – 8 + 1) * 4 = -12

Rupert Parson| Guest October 1st, 2007 - 11:04 am-12

Ray| Guest October 1st, 2007 - 8:14 pmHow about -12?

(((8-7)+1)*2) = 4

(((9-9)+1)*5) = 5

(((4-8)+1)*4) = -12

Rupert Parson| Guest October 2nd, 2007 - 3:13 am..X..

A…B

C…D

X = ((D-A)+C)*B

4 = ((8-7)+1)*2

5 = ((9-9)+1)*5

-12 = ((4-8)+1)*4

Shawn| Guest October 2nd, 2007 - 9:16 amThe answer could be -12.

Formula is:

(Lower Right – Upper Left + Lower Left) * Upper Right

First ovoid = (8 – 7 + 1) * 2 = 2 * 2 = 4

Second ovoid = (9 – 9 + 1) * 5 = 1 * 5 = 5

Third ovoid = (4 – 8 + 1) * 4 = -3 * 4 = -12

Brandon| Guest October 3rd, 2007 - 8:40 amTake each of the top and bottom two red numbers as two digits and divide the bottom number by the top, so:

72 / 18 = 4

95 / 19 = 5

84 / 14 = 6

Rasool| Guest October 3rd, 2007 - 3:30 pmThe top two numbers divide by two bottom 72/18=4, 95/19=5, 84/14=6.

So the answer is 6.

Smartesthumanalive| Profile May 25th, 2008 - 4:10 amIts 7

EX:

(7-1+8) = 2 *2 = 4

(9-1+9) = 1 *5 = 5

(8-1-4) = 3 *4 = 12
