A puzzle for geniuses: find an unknown number as fast as you can

Puzzles can help improve long-term and short-term memory, visual acuity, and attention to detail. As a nice bonus, such tasks distract you from everyday worries and promote a good mood.

Can you find the missing number in 7 seconds?

The correct answer

The unknown number can be calculated as follows:

4 + 8×2 = 20

9 + 3×2 = 15

Following the same pattern:

6 + 6×2 = 18

So, the missing number is 18.

By the way, MIT professor Shane Frederick has developed the shortest IQ test that will show you if you are smarter than 80% of people on Earth. You only need to answer three questions.

Earlier, OBOZREVATEL published a quick psychological test that will help determine whether you are a naive person.
