 Giridhar said: (May 9, 2016) It's, (4 * 6)/3 = 8. (6 * 10)/5 = 12. (8 * 4)/2 = 16.

 Biniyam said: (Jul 28, 2016) What if. 8 = (4 * 6) - (6 * 3) + 2. 12 = (6 * 10) - (10 * 5) + 2. (4 * 8) - (8 * 2) + 2 = 18. Am I right.

 Parameswarawarman said: (Jun 11, 2017) 4*6=24 (4 6 3 =8) 24/3 so 8. 6*10=60 (6 10 5 =12) 60/5 so 12. Same way 4 * 8 = 32 (4 8 2=?) 32/2 = 16.
