In this quiz the numbers in each group are related in the SAME way. Find the missing number and select the correct answer from the four choices available. The number you are looking for each time is missing from the square brackets [ ]. The sums might be multiply, divide, add or subtract, and the best way to work them out is to see what operation was carried out in the first two bracketed series, and do the same to the one with the missing number. An example has been done for you.

Example:

(12 [4] 48), (19 [6] 114), (12 [ ? ] 36)

3

4

5

6

The correct answer is 3.

This is because 12 and 48 are related by dividing 48 by 12 to get the number in the middle. 19 is related to 114 in the SAME way (dividing 114 by 19 results in 6). The relationship is DIVIDE.

The correct answer is 3.

This is because 12 and 48 are related by dividing 48 by 12 to get the number in the middle. 19 is related to 114 in the SAME way (dividing 114 by 19 results in 6). The relationship is DIVIDE.

1.

Look at the relationship between the first and last number in each set of brackets, and use that relationship to find the missing number.

Choose the correct answer from the four choices available.

(59 [97] 38), (47 [58] 11), (68 [?] 18)

68

59 and 38 are related by adding 59 to 38 to get the number in the middle. 47 is related to 11 in the SAME way (adding 47 to 11 results in 58). 68 + 18 = 86. The relationship is ADD

2.

Look at the relationship between the first and last number in each set of brackets, and use that relationship to find the missing number.

72 and 9 are related by dividing 72 by 9 to get the number in the middle. 64 is related to 16 in the SAME way (dividing 64 by 16 results in 4). 48 ÷ 12 = 4. The relationship is DIVIDE. 48 is the smallest number we have which can be divided by 10 different numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24 and of course, 48 itself

3.

Look at the relationship between the first and last number in each set of brackets, and use that relationship to find the missing number.
