Its simple
3+3=6 6-1=5
5+5=10 10-2=8
8+8=16 16-3=13
13+13=26 26-4=22
Therefore
22+22=44 44-5=39

3+3=6 6-1 = 5.
5+5=10 10-2 = 8.
8+8=16 16-3 = 13.
13+13=26 26-4 = 22.

0 + 3 = 3.
3 + 3 = 6 - 1, 5.
5 + 5 = 10 - 2.8.
8 + 8 = 16 - 3 = 13.
13 + 13 = 26 - 4, 22.
22 + 22 = 44 - 5, 39.

@Mohanapriya.

@Vasanthi and @Venu Reddy.

35 is wrong.

Actually, 8+13=21.

Tarani said: (Dec 22, 2019)  
I think correct answer is 39.
Actually 8+13 is not 22 it's 21.
