  32. Rajaram S says:

    Approach: Assumed that this was a straight-forward math puzzle with no hidden non-math approach. Tried to find a relation between the equations.
    the equations respectively need the following multiplication factors 2,7,6,8. Couldn’t make out a series with the above numbers.
    I had an excel whose password was supposed to be the answer to this puzzle.
    I first reasoned out thus: 2+6=8, so thew next number must be 7+8-15. Applying this multiplicative factor, 9+7=16*15=240..the excel didnt open!

    Then by a stroke of luck, noticed that the multiplicative factor was the same number as the first one in the equation, so tried 9+7=16*9=144..the excel opened ..

    not a good puzzle!
