(10*9)+(9-1)=98 answer Jul 22, 2015 by anonymous
its a multiple of 4 the entry calculation. What i did was as followed. 23-7=16, 47-23=24, 79-47=32, so the difference between each subtraction is 8 so that means 32+8=40 so 79+40=119, am i missing something? Can anyone elaborate?
That's the same logic I followed. So 119 is not correct??
if 2*3=3 5*4=6 2*8=7 then 3*5=?
What's this?
3*2+1=7
5*4+3=23
7*6+5=47
9*8+7=79
therefore
10*9+11=101 ya 10*9+9=99
becouse this que. is odd even que. there becouse ans is 99
no sir, odd even nub is not  important .  if this question get like as 2  3 = 7
5  4  = 23 .............. and then 14  13 = ?  to aap kya karoge  to fir kitna time loge solve karne m....

Given series is,
ODD EVEN = RELATION
3 2 7 ( 3*2+1)
5 4 23 (5*4+3)
7 6 47 (7*6+5)
9 8 79 (9*8+7)
Following the series we concluded that, Next term in this series must be,
11 10 119 (11*10+9)

But for confusing, the question term is of different nature of,
10 9 ??

Hence the problem is from a complete series of the following type,

3 2 7 ( 3*2+1)
4 3 14 (4*3+2)
5 4 23 (5*4+3)
6 5 34 (6*5+4)
7 6 47 (7*6+5)
8 7 62 (8*7+6)
9 8 79 (9*8+7)
10 9 98 (10*9+8)
11 10 119 (11*10+9)

Hence the answer must be 98 answer Jul 27, 2015
98 is correct

(3*2)+1=7
(5*4)+3=23
(7*6)+5=47
(9*8)+7=79
(10*9)+9=99 or (10*9)+8=98........ answer Sep 29, 2015 by anonymous

3x2+1=7
5x4+3=23
7x6+5=47
9x8+7=79
10x9+9=99

10x9+"8"=98

I'm curious, why a*b+(b-1)= isn't the correct formula?
it gives correct answer for all given
3 2 = 7
5 4 = 23
7 6 = 47
9 8 = 79
and also does answer for any other numbers, like
5459 5458 = 29800679
and you should not to make calculations like
3+2+2=7
5+4+2+3+2+7=23
7+6+2+5+4+23=47
9+8+2+7+6+47=79
10+9+2+9+8+79=117
where you need to complete all middle steps to get the correct answer in further numbers

or if I'll remove a line from original example:
3 2 = 7
5 4 = 23
deleted line
9 8 = 79
so the "third" line of this example appears to be wrong if we need to sum 9*8 with 5 instead of 7 - 9*8+5=77
so it's can't be the correct answer.
but a*b+(b-1)= works same here.

maybe not all must be too complicated?

10*9+9=99 answer Feb 19, 2016

3*2 = 6 +1  ( adding 1 because 2-1=1)

5*4 = 20+3 (4-1=3)

7*6 = 42+5 (6-1=5)

9*8 = 72+7 (8-1=7)

So by observation,

10*9 = 90+ 8 = 98 (9-1=8) answer Jun 2, 2018
( adding 1 because 2-1=1) < (1 because 3-2 = 1, 5-4, 7-6 etc)

3 *2+1=7

7 *6+5 = 47
9*8+7 = 79

Hence,

10*9+8 =98 answer Sep 10, 2015
According to your solution it should be 10*9+9=99 & solution series should be simply 1 3 5 7 9.
Or we have a similar solution posted by Md Sadique Alam above, but I find it wrong as well, as the series is not starting by 1
