## Two Three Four Fifteen

What is the missing number?

2 3 4 15 12

3 4 5 28 20

4 5 6 45 30

5 6 7 66 42

6 7 8 **??** 56

91. To get the number in the fourth column, you add the numbers in column 1 and 2, then multiply by the number in column 2. f(n,m) = (n + m) * m

For example, f(2,3) = (2 + 3) * 3 = 15. Thus f(6,7) = (6 + 7) * 7 = 91

91, the answer is acheived by adding the first two numbers together and multiplying by the second number.

i.e (2+3)x3=15, (3+4)x4=28 etc

Well, this one is a bit dubious. By dismissing columns 3 and 5, you can come up with plenty of different solutions. Like 67: there is a pattern in columns 4 and 5, column 5-4 = -3, -8, -15, -24. This has pattern +5, +7, +9, +11 so the next one is +11. And 56 + 11 = 67.
