If

2    3 = 9
5    4 = 26
6    2 = 13

Then

7    4 = ??
posted Aug 2, 2016

Solution:

2x3 = 6+3 = 9

5x4 = 20+6 = 26

6-2 = 4+9 = 13

7-4 = 3+12 = 15

If we give values of x=0,1,2 corresponding to y=9,26,13 the series follows the curve y=9+32x-15x^2. In that case for the next value of x=3, y comes =30
