in STEMGeeks2 years ago

Hey All;

Let's have a look at our second Math Brain Teasers 2 :: Dice & Numbers - Find the Missing Number?

I got feedback that the first Brainteaser was somewhat complicated to start with. Hence this time lowering down the complication and presenting with a simple and easy Math Brain Teasers 2: Dice & Numbers

Here is a quick tip to find the missing number; don't think too much. At times the puzzles are so simple that our overthinking makes it difficult to solve them.

### Math Brain Teasers 1:: Solved with Explanation

Let's look at the answers and the math/logic involved in finding the missing number for our First Math Brain Teasers question.

### Logic to Finding the Missing Number

Step1. Perform Multiplication First as indicated in the image

Step2. We reach the resultant by adding the individual results that make up our answer

### Example as follows::

For 12x12 = 144, Now Add Resultant:: 1 + 4 + 4 = 9

For 23x23 = 529, Now Add Resultant:: 5 + 2 + 9 = 16

For 34x34 = 1156, Now Add Resultant:: 1 + 1 + 5 + 6 = 13

Hence the missing number/answer to our First Math Brain Teasers 1 is = 13

Best Regards

i think that is 18 :D

I will go with 17 :) Don't ask me how lol.

The unknown dice looks like the last dice. Though, I am not so sure about this. It could have a different answer but I still choose 14.

14

I'll say 14 in line with @starstrings rationale about the twin dice.

Will admit to being a lil puzzled by the first die, but in light of the hint I suspect that's a distractor.

G'luk everybody. 😀
