Math Problems

Posted by: 

I love math problems like this! They really get your mind thinking!

Were you able to solve this one?

Here is how we solved it:

if 4=12 because 4x3=12 then each problem would be multiplied by consecutive numbers starting with 3.

  5=20 5x4=20

  6=30 6x5=30

  7=42 7x6=42

  8=56 8x7=56

then 12=132

Had we continued to show the numbers 9, 10 and 11 being multiplied by consecutive numbers, you would know that 12 would then be multiplied by 11.

12x11=132

These are easy problems to recreate and get your students thinking!
