 Fayaz said: (Jan 6, 2017) 12 - 8 = 4. 4 * 12 = 48. 4 * 8 = 32. 48 + 32 = 80. 25-21 = 4. 25 * 4 = 100. 21 * 4 = 84. 100 + 84 = 184.

 Siva Prasanth said: (Jun 6, 2017) 12 + 8 = 20 then 20 * 4 = 80. 16 + 7 = 23 then 23 * 9 = 207. 21 + 25 = 46 then 46 * 4 = 184.

 Zain Bilal said: (Apr 10, 2021) 12+8 = 20*(12-8) = 80. 16+7 = 23*(16-7) = 207. 25+21 = 46 * (25-21) = 184.

 Suresh said: (Sep 15, 2021) 12 * 12 - 8 * 8 = 80, 16 * 16 - 7 * 7 = 207, 25 * 25 - 21 * 21 = 184.
