Hi lizawa

Maybe, we can go along this line

Triangle1) --> (6*6)+(5*5)+12 -->73
Triangle2) --> (2*2)+(3*3)+17 -->30
Triangle3) --> ((4*4)+(7*7)+23 --> 88(ans)

Is it correct?

Hi Tianzhu,

thanks ! If I get a different solution, I will let you know if your son's answer is correct. Sounds logical to me ! Your son must be well prepared for his PSLE.

Column 1 : (2 x 16) / 4 = 8

Column 2 : (4 x 12) / 4 = 12

Column 3 : (2 x 48 / 4 = 24

What do you all think?

I worked out as 24

(Column 1 x Column 2 )/4 = Column 3

or

(Row 1 x Row 2) / 4 = Row 3

column 2, 4/4 x12 = 12
column 3, 2/4 x 48 = 24
