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.

Smallest number among square * 2 givesthe answer is also possible.
i.e 5 4 7, 4 *2 = 8 .
6 9 5then 5 * 2 = 10 therefore 3 7 2...2 * 2 = 4.
