This is a good puzzle that I got by email:

2 + 3 = 10
7 + 2 = 63
6 + 5 = 66
8 + 4 = 96

Assuming all of those are true,

9 + 7 = ?

I am assuming Fiskar and i came to the same conclusion as we have the same answer its the first number + the second number x by the first number
9+7 = 16 x 9 = 144

Oh wait

Hang on, misread one of the numbers

Came to 160 like this

(2 + 3) * 2 = 10
(7 + 2) * 4 = 36 ->suposed to be 63
(6 + 5) * 6 = 66
(8 + 4) * 8 = 96
(9 + 7) *10 = 160
