I first thought of like this :-

6 + 2 x ( 4 -3) =8
10 + 2 x (6-5) =12

It's,

(4 * 6)/3 = 8.
(6 * 10)/5 = 12.
(8 * 4)/2 = 16.

What if.

8 = (4 * 6) - (6 * 3) + 2.
12 = (6 * 10) - (10 * 5) + 2.

(4 * 8) - (8 * 2) + 2 = 18.

Am I right.

What is the use of % here? Please explain in detail.

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.

It can also be (1st + 2nd) - (3rd+1).

Whether my logic is right?
