rb73

I will go with Janneey03

3x3-3=6

Answer is 6

frez.joe

rb73 use ur own brain in proper way,she didn't mentioned that X....

3X3=9

But actual answer is 3X2=6 ,,, :P

I am not a genius, but still I take the liberty of answering your Q. The answer is 6.

Strom

i think its 9

9 = 72 (9*8)
8 = 56(8*7)
7 = 42(7*6)
6 = 30(6*5)
5 = 20)5*4)
3 = ??(3*3)

A real genius will answer this , Wrong equations.. Where on earth it is 9=72..

A QL genius.. he missed 4=12 in his series..the answer will be 3 = 6... which is of course wrong. :)

Conclusion - U dont have to be genius to answer this wrong question as so far in examination what ever you answer for a wrong question you will get full marks. :)

To make it a right equation you have to include characters a b c x y z.. etc

Janneeyy03

LLR you are right, hahaha 4=12 is not in the equation then 3=6 is not right then.. I thought imma genius! hmmmmm

Strom

when a number is not even in a series why u guys are considering it ....

(hate it when i m wrong)

flor1212

it is an IQ test. 4 was intentionally not mentioned. It is a series test?

Janneeyy03

i actually notice it was not there, just thought of considering it should be in there, OP might just missed it.

The answer is 14..and yes, I am a member of Mensa with an IQ score of 156 :)

9 = 72
8 = 56
7 = 42
6 = 30
5 = 20
3 = ?? The Answer is (1-1)X3= 0
1
-1

zain79

9 = 72 [56 + (8+8)]
8 = 56 [42 + (7+7)]
7 = 42 [30 + (6+6)]
6 = 30 [20 + (5+5)]
5 = 20 [14 + (3+3)]
3 = 14

flor1212

a squared minus a

9 squared is 81 minus 9 is 72
8 squared is 64 minus 8 is 56
.
.
.
so 3 squared is 9 minus 3 is 6.

I stand by my first answer, Janney is right, I mean correct! Lol!

Janneeyy03

Though for the first time we agreed on the same answer Flor, we have different formula, and mine is complicated. ya know, ladies hehe.

But yeah, imma stick to 3=6

zain79

3 = 14 and 6 is the value (3+3) which is added to get the next number 20

ranjith77

Here 3=15. So that the next two digits end the series.

StaceyR

*wonders why hasn't anyone come up with the answer - 69?*

ghazalz

Oh I thought it was genuine. lolzzz I'm not genius :D

frez.joe

Stacey!! u mean 69 !!!! oh, i like that # tho!!!

StaceyR

yeah Frez.. I know you do.. I think.. I don't know really.. I'm just guessing.

landloverreview

Stacey I am sorry you lost your last thread..hope ur friend is doing good. 69 is a good option. :)

Rizks

I dont know ! :(

Can i use a calculator ? :(

cherukkan

flor, sorry padre, It is 6, I want someone to comment like you.

strom, your calculation is correct but you missed 4 after 5 in the sequence.

flor1212

I was just thinking maybe I missed something and that you are right! Heheheheh!

cadyos

9 72 -56=16
8 56 -42=14
7 42 -30=12
6 30 -20=10
5 20 -12=8
4 12 -6=6
3 6 -2=4

ANSWER IS 6

cadyos

9 = 72 (9*8)
8 = 56 (8*7)
7 = 42 (7*6)
6 = 30 (6*5)
5 = 20 (5*4)
4 = 12 (4*3)
3 = ?? (3*2)

ANSWER IS 6

zafirah

9 * 9 = 81 - 9 = 72
8 * 8 = 64 - 8 = 56
7 * 7 = 49 - 7 = 42
6 * 6 = 36 - 6 = 30
5 * 5 = 25 - 5 = 20
4 * 4 = 16 - 4 = 12
3 * 3 = 9 - 3 = 6

so the answer is 6.

ashtdr

It can be calculated in two ways.
One is:
(x squred minus x)
for eg. (9 squred - 9) = 81-9 = 72
....
..
..
3squre- 3 = 9 - 3 = 6

Otherwise:
x*(x-1)
ie, 9*8=72

...
3*2=6

In both way the answr is 6

Sulieman

what is nice about these quizzes is

Rizks

LOls ,, You stoopid fox ,,, you can't live without calculator :O)

Janneeyy03

haha yes sulieman, agreed :)

You don't check pm's, don't you?

Rizks

Janney should i check my PM too ? :)

londonlad

its 6.... its deduction of numbers receding by 2 (or proceeding by 2) if you look the otherway round.... all so called geniuses LOL

see below:

9 = 72
8 = 56 (72-16)
7 = 42 (56-14)
6 = 30 (42-12)
5 = 20 (30-10)
4 = 12 (20-8)
3 = ?? (12-6) = 6
2 = 2 (6-4)
1 = 0 (2-2)

Look at the number being subtracted, its deducting by 2 steps in sequence.

osamabawab

the funny part is: after 59 answers the OP is not confirming any, & leaving everybody in the storm!

ghazalz

He doesn't know the answer, that's why he asked :P

Janneeyy03

Even the OP himself do not know the answer :p

hehehe
