Nothing here?

Post by FrenchForumSurvivor »

Nothing here for folks to while away the time while waiting for another topic to have a reply?

1 + 4 = 5
2 + 5 = 12
3 + 6 = 21
8 + 11 = ?

Just as well we have the notification of a post in front of you. I was about to post the answer but elsie beat me too it.
I did notice on another forum, she asked a similar question but the member there that used to be here got stuck. I would have got that one as well.
Would it have stumped us here.

It's not just 96, there's another possible answer as well. ;)

40 but the problem is the first three rows look to be part of a sequence
If you use the method to get to 40 (add the result of the previous line to the addition you don't have a previous line for 1+4=5)

or maybe not:
96 and 201 seem to be logical answers as well
