My shoulder-surfing (and very annoying) twelve-year-old almost immediately suggested the following:

If it's in the top row of boxes, you add it; if it's in the bottom row of boxes, you subtract it. The circle is the answer.

After I'd posted the earlier reply, you added another exercise. Since edits don't show up as new postings, I'd nearly overlooked this. :oops: In future, please post new questions as new posts. Thank you! :D

Hint: Multiply across the center....

The circle has a center; it's where all the pie-wedges meet.

Look at the numbers in wedges on opposite sides of the center.

As you said, for example, one of the opposite pairs is 2 and 18, or 6 and 6. So, how can i multiply them as your advise ?Actually i don't make sense with "multiply across the center" !Please explain again for me! Thanks a lot!

If you're not able to multiply 12 by 3 or 6 by 6 on your own, try using a calculator! :wink:
