Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My original answer was 13. But then my friend came up with 66. Think 66 is correct as the spread is 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Harkirat: Please explain 57. the differences are 298 (89) 209 (80) 129 (71) 58 (54) 4,

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theres a change, because the final is 4, it is 62, not 54, so the difference decreases by 9 between each set, therefore the next one is 629=53, so 453=57

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See, it goes like this 298  89 = 209 209  80 = 129 129  71 = 58 58  62 = 4 4 53 = 57 Got it now??
