1) 5 4 7 Here 7 is the greatest number keep aside, add the rest (5+4)= 9 , the number in between 7 and 9 is 8. 2) 6 9 5 Similarly - 9 greatest keep aside add the rest (6+5) = 11, number in between 9 and 11 is 10, 3) Apply the same thing - 3 7 2 add the lowest number 3+2 = 5. Number between 5 and 7 is 6. |
