another way to get 6 is if you subtract the middle number from both the first and last numbers you are left with a multiple of 9. So, 37-10=27 27=9x3 & 82-10=72 72=9x8 etc.

Good one, thanks. Aw, I thought there were 4 separate problems ... I never got to the one with the question mark before I gave up. Next time i'll look at the whole problem first.

plrm01 ... so when you get to the multiple of 9, how do you get 6 from that? I'm missing something.

I did something similar to plrm01 - multiply the first digit in the first number by nine and then subtract that answer from the number (37 - 3x9=27; 37-27=10. So 42 - 4x9=36; 42-36=6)
Do the same with the 2nd number, only it it on instead of subtracting it!

thecatladycac and plrm01, you guys are good .

plrm01, I finally figured out how your method works ... clever!

sweetpotato, I'm glad that you figured it out. Sorry it took me so long to respond back to you.

That was really good! Until I saw the answer I had no idea what we were suposed to do. Next time I will
have a better clue. Good one!

Got it from the first (1'st) # in each series; didn't see the connection to the last number in each series though.
