**Answer: 99**

Explanation:

(3*2) + 1 = 7

(5*4) + 3 = 23

(7*6) + 5 = 47

(9*8) + 7 = 79

**(10*9) + 9 = 99**

There is one more pattern for this puzzle and with that pattern answer would be **98**.

(3*2) + 2 – 1 = 7

(5*4) + 4 – 1 = 23

(7*6) + 6 – 1 = 47

(9*8) + 8 – 1 = 79

**(10*9) + 9 – 1 = 98**

Hi Kumar

I think the answer is 98; not 99.

Ie 10×9 + (9-1)

This formula fits all lines. There is a disruption to the pattern between the last two lines.

Your method would be correct if the last line was continuing the pattern (ie: was 11 x 10 instead of 10 x 9)

Have a great day

Thank You Nancy. I will add your answer also in this post 🙂 . I think answer can be both 98 or 99.

The answer to both is 99. The puzzle done the first way only uses odd numbers when adding….(3×2)+1=7 next adds the number 3, then 5, 7, and 9. The puzzle done the second way only uses even numbers when adding, then minuses the number 1…. (3×2)+2-1=7 so next adds the number 4, then 6, 8 making the last number to add 10. (10×9)=90+10=100-1=99..so staying with your formula, the answer is always 99.
