**Number Puzzle #167**

What’s the missing number?

Now try cracking this one! A real tough one to crack! Read carefully, think and reply…

1 word (3 different ways) fills all 3 blanks. This is a bit tricky

jane, ali and pat each planted a tree 90cm in height . in the time it took jane’s tree to grow by 1 cm, ali’s tree grow by 2 cm. by the time it took ali tree to grow by 2cm pat tree grow by 3 cm . how tall was jane tree when pat tree was 108 cm in height.

Check your answer:-

Answer With SolutionAnswer: 96cm

Solution: let’s say jane’s tree grow by 1cm in X time, and in the same time ali’s tree grow by 2cm and pat’s tree grow by 3cm.

so to grow 108 – 90 = 18 cm, pat’s tree should take 18/3 = 6X time and jane’s tree should grow by 6cm in the same time.

Check your answer:-

Answer With Solution**Answer**: 4

**Solution**:

You might want to solve it simply like this

First equation: Football + Football + Football = 18 => Football = 18/3 = 6

Second Equation: Wall Clock= 9/3 = 3

Third Equation: Table Fan * Table Fan – Table Fan = 6 => (Table Fan) x (Table Fan – 1) = 6

from 3×2 = 6 => Table Fan = 3

Thus Wall Clock x Football – Table Fan = 3 x 6 – 3 = 15

**BUT**, if you look carefully, it is not a simple math equation puzzle, football in last equation is different than other, wall clock in 4th equation having different time than the ones in second equation, similarly table fan has 2 blades than 3.

**So how do we solve it?**

In the first equation black marks on Football are 6, therefore Football value is : 6

In the Second equation clock shows 3pm.. so clock value is 3

In the third equation, table fan has 3 blades, thus having a value of 3, OR you can say a table fan with 3 blades has value 3, thus with 2 blades should have a value 2.

In last equation clock is 2 and Football marks are 3, and table fan has 2 blades

thus 2×3 -2 = 4

Can you find the missing number in the below triangle from the 4 options given in the image ?

Check your answer:-

Answer With Explanation**Explanation**: Its actually simple logic, generally we think to find out the relation between the opposite sides, but here the relation is in between adjacent numbers, which is very unusual though.

9 * 2 = 18 -1 = 17

160 *2 = 320 -1 = 319

475 * 2 = 950 – 1 = **949**

If ‘JANUARY’ is ‘JULY’, ‘SEPTEMBER’ is ‘SEPTEMBER, ‘FEBRUARY’ is ‘AUGUST’ and ‘MARCH’ is ‘MAY’ then ‘AUGUST’ is ?

September has 9 letter. 9 corresponds to September itself.

Similarly for March=> MAY

and February => August

Thus, As August has 6 letters, which corresponds to JUNE.
