Another new number puzzle, it’s usually designed in the form of a pyramid with the participant having to place numerical values into boxes, but has been slightly amended for the blog.

**F=A+B G=B+C H=C+D I=D+E J=F+G K=G+H L=H+I M=J+K N=K+L and P=M+N.**

**If A=10 H=29 K=47 L=54 and M=76, what is the value of E?**

E = 9

That was hard, had to draw it out like a pyramid to make progress but even then took about 30 mins to solve. Interesting though

E is not 9 I’m afraid. Why not write each equation on a different line? Should take you about 5 minutes that way!

E = 11

Hopefully correct this time, I think I just made it too complicated, great puzzle, especially if I got it correct this time

Thanks Martin, but not correct. Vijay is I’m afraid.

I solved for E, I get E as 13. Now waiting for Paul to give his verdict now if the answer is correct, please be noted that I have taken 8 mins so far )

Cheers

Vijay

The answer is . . . . . 13, yay!!

E = 13 Because…

A=10

B=1

C=17

D=12

E=13

F=11

G=18

H=29

I=25

J=29

K=47

L=54

M=76

N=101

P=177

Well done Elin and Charlotte. I’ll be postnig a few of these over the coming weeks! Keep a look-out!

Sorry, I meant Erin!!
