I think the first one is simple multiples of 3, and the second one seems to be doubling the amount taken off the last figure, but I'm not expert, I just happened to see your post!!

Hi aaman1,

I know how to do the first one, but am struggling with the 2nd one. Will try to get the answer from my DD if she can solve it.

(4[12]36) (2[6]18) (5[?]45)

4 X 3 = 12 X 3 = 36, therefore the number in brackets being 12
2 x 3 = 6 x 3 = 18, therefore the number in brackets being 6
5 x3 = 15 x 3 = 45, therefore teh number in brackets being 15

So the common number being used for multiplying is "3"

Hope this helps.

(4[12]36) (2[6]18) (5[?]45)

4 x 36 = 144
144 divided by 12 [number on left x 3] = 12

18 x 2 = 36
36 divided by 6 [number on the left x 3] = 6

45 x 5 = 225
225 divided by 15 [number on the left x 3] = 15

or

4 x 36 = 144
144 divided by 12 [the number on the right divided by 3] =12

2 x 18 = 36
36 divided by 6 [number on the left divided by 3] = 6

45 x 5 = 225
225 divided by 15 [number on the right divided by 3] = 15

(14[15]17) (2[5]9) (8[?]23)

Not got time to work out at the moment, dashing out. Are the numbers correct?

Number two is as follows:

14 + 17 = 31
31 - 1 = 30
30 / 2 = 15

2 + 9 = 11
11 - 1 = 10
10 / 2 = 5

8 + 23 = 31
31 - 1 = 30
30 / 2 = 15

Hope that helps.

As I did not have time to write up the answer earlier, I took it with me to my lessons this evening, the children "got it" straight away. Once children know the basic method and techniques and as long as they work logically, they will always find the answer.

There have been a few examples of using 3 operations instead of the bog standard 2. I try teach my children all possibilities.
