# A Tasking Puzzle: Can You Guess The Missing Number Correctly?

140

Much more than whiling away time, math puzzles are beneficial, but before we get the juicy details, we have a task for you.

Do you consider yourself smart? If yes, then can you correctly figure out the missing number?

All you need to do is find the right pattern between the existing numbers.

While most people had a hard time with numbers in school, having a good knowledge of math goes beyond passing your courses. Math is essential for our everyday life. It helps us while cooking and with our finances.

Now, to the task at hand. Have you been able to find the pattern of the numbers in order to come up with the right answer? If you’re still struggling, let’s help you out!

If you read the numbers per line, you will realize that each is an addition of the previous two. For example,

6+3=9

9+7= 16

16+1= 17.

Following this pattern, to find the missing number, we’ll need to calculate:

17+?= 29.

Subtracting 17 from 29 will give us 12. Therefore, the missing number is 12!

Easy right?
