N*(N+1):

3*(3+1) = 12.

5*(5+1) = 30.

3*(3+1) = 12.

5*(5+1) = 30.

Simple explanation is;

3 * 4 = 12.

In the second proportion;

The First digit is 5 and the next digit is 6.

So, 5 * 6=30.

Now,

3:3 * 4 :: 5 : 5 : 6.

3:12::5::30.

3 * 4 = 12.

In the second proportion;

The First digit is 5 and the next digit is 6.

So, 5 * 6=30.

Now,

3:3 * 4 :: 5 : 5 : 6.

3:12::5::30.

The best solution to understand this is:

What comes after 3 is 4.

So 3*4 = 12.

What's come after 5 is 6.

5*6 = 30.

What comes after 3 is 4.

So 3*4 = 12.

What's come after 5 is 6.

5*6 = 30.

Answer is 15.

1*2+1 = 3,

3*3+3 = 12.

And;

4*1+1 = 5,

6*2+3 = 15.

1*2+1 = 3,

3*3+3 = 12.

And;

4*1+1 = 5,

6*2+3 = 15.

3 and 5 are consecutive prime numbers so,

3 * 4 = 12 and 5 * 4 = 20 so 20 also can be the answer.

3 * 4 = 12 and 5 * 4 = 20 so 20 also can be the answer.
