x + y + z = mmnnoo
x = 7, y = 2, z = 6
mm = x * y
nn = x * z
oo = mm + nn - y
7 + 2 + 6 = 144254

That's what I got

The first number multiplied by the second number will give you the first answer

The first number multiplied by the third number will give you the middle

Subtract the middle number from The sum of both answers and that's it

Here, we have 7+2+6
7×2=14
7×6=42
42+14-2= 54
