It could be this...

6 x 9 = 54

5 x 8 = 40

4 x 7 = 28

3 x Y = Z

2 x 5 = 10

-- But then the answer would NOT be following the GIVEN PATTERN and this puzzle would become like a woman who is not being direct.

-- 1) this puzzle IS NOT ASKING you to fill in a missing grid, SO THAT CANNOT BE ALLOWED! PERIOD!

-- 2) This puzzle IS asking you to find a pattern WITH AND ONLY WITH THE EXISTING information, not by adding to it.

-- 3) inserting something into this would be adding to the MATH PUZZLE WHICH CANNOT BE ALLOWED BECAUSE THAT IS NOT the scientific way and that derails away from EXACTLY what the equation is asking. (It is ONLY asking for the next number, nothing more and nothing in between!)

-- 4) the scientific way is to answer only the question in which you are asked.

-- 5) if the puzzle wanted another grid row, then it should've been written EXACTLY LIKE THIS: ("make this pattern complete by inserting steps in order to discover the missing "??"

-- 6) if the puzzle didn't read those exact words VERBATIM, then it is a puzzle WRITTEN BY A PRESCHOOLER WHO ADDS THE RULES AS THEY GO ALONG. SIMPLE AS THAT.

Don't tell me they wanted you to add an extra row. Cuz THAT'S NOT AT ALL what they asked for!

“No” she replied. “ My children are playing with friends from

3 other Families “.

“Our Family happens to be the largest, The Berry Family have a smaller

Number of Children, The Charles Family have an even smaller number

and the Dickens have the smallest of all”.

“How many children altogether ?” asked Mr. Johnson.

Mrs. Albert replied , “There are fewer than 18 and the product of the

Numbers in the 4 Families happens to be my House number which you

already know”. Mr. Johnson asked if there was more than one child in the

Dickens Family. Mrs Albert replied.

How many children are there in each family ?

I hope it's not an easy question.

]]>To give you some clues: If you have only two chances to use the balance and you know that the fake ball is lighter than other balls, you can determine the fake ball from at most nine balls (i.e. 8 good balls and 1 lighter fake ball). The way is: after labeling all the balls as 1-9, on first use of the balance, you put balls labeled 1, 2, 3 on the left side of the balance and put balls labeled 4, 5, 6 on the right side of the balance. If balanced, you know the lighter fake ball must be within 7, 8, 9. Then, on the second use of the balance, you put 7 on the left and 8 on the right. If balanced, 9 is the fake ball, if not, the ball that is weighted by the balance as lighter (i.e. the “up” side of balance) is the fake ball.

If, however, the first time is not balanced, you know the fake ball must be one of the three that on the up side (amongst the lighter balls). Then the second time would be to determine the light fake ball from three balls, which is exactly the same as determining the fake ball from 7, 8, 9 as shown above.

Questions:

(1) How can you determine the fake ball (don’t know lighter or heavier) from 9 balls (8 good balls & 1 fake ball) and tell whether the fake ball is lighter or heavier, by using the balance three times, given that your first use of the balance is having 1, 2, 3 on the left and 4, 5, 6 on the right.

(2) How can you determine the fake ball (don’t know lighter or heavier) from 12 balls (11 good balls & 1 fake ball) and tell whether the fake ball is lighter or heavier by using the balance three times.

(3) If you have four chances to use the balance, what is the maximum number of balls from which the fake ball (don’t know lighter or heavier) can be identified. In this question, you don’t need to tell whether the fake ball is lighter or heavier in the end. (Although this seems like an open question, you will know that you’ve gotten the right answer if you’re able to find it)

The Pattern Score is calculated as :

= Rows–Row Products+Columns–Column Products–Product of Diagonals–Product of Corners–Product of Diamonds

Which means in the example pattern the Score is :

= 123–6+456–120+789–504+147–28+258–80+369–162–45–105–189–384

=519
