## Ten Times Two is 0218

10 × 2 = 0218
20 × 2 = 1421
30 × 2 = 1632
40 × 2 = ?

2840.

This makes the first column the start of the Fibonacci series: 0, 1, 1, 2.
The second column is the even numbers: 2, 4, 6, 8
The third column is counting up by ones: 1, 2, 3, 4
And the last column is the answer in the first row in reverse: 8, 1, 2, 0.

Don’t ask what 50 × 2 equals. I have no idea. :)

Thanks to Jim for helping with the solution.

1843

the difference should be 1, difference should be 2, difference should be 1, Last digit

10 – 2= 8
20-2=18 (Take 1st digit, 1)
30-2=28 (Take 1st digit , 2)
40-20=38 (Take 1st digit , 3))

Excuse me pls s!r…!I do accept that of the first,second,and this column..but that of the 4th/last column I can’t comprehend how the anwer is 0.. But for me, I’ll go for 2843

The 0 is the first number on the first line – 0218. The numbers down the fourth column are the reverse of this number, 8120. Having a 3 there doesn’t make a pattern.

40 x 2 = 80. The first 3 lines are incorrect.

all you guys are looking at this wrong. You can’t look at the numbers as numbers. You have to look at them as though they are butterflies. butterflies, flying, floating, eating bread, humping and making love to sweet roses. Imagine them all around you. feel what the numbers colors are. feel them floating around you not as butterflies but also as dragonflies, moths, bumblebees. Feel the roses and the irises. don’t just revel in their astounding colors’…feel; realy FEEL THEM.
If you can do all that, then you realize the wonderful truth. numbers can be anything. one can mean one. But it can also be a butterfly. it can also be a rose. life is beautiful. peace out.
