    I can't seem to figure out these two puzzles. Anyone see any pattern here that I'm missing? I need to find the number represented by the ? symbol

    1.

    22
    7 ¦ 16
    14 ¦ 7
    ?
    ----35---- ¦ ----154--- ¦ ---60--

    2.

    ----6---- ¦ ---14----
    1
    2 ¦ 19
    16
    ---10---- ¦ ---26----

    ---15---- ¦ ---13----
    3
    10 ¦ 3
    ?
    ---21---- ¦ ----1----

    1st one took about 2 minutes
    Answer is 3

    (35/7)+22=27
    (154/14)+16=27
    (60/3)+7=27

    After well over 5 minutes I got desperate for an answer to the 2nd.
    Answer I'm guessing is 32

    adding 4 to each answer

    (10+2)-(1+6)=5
    (26+16)-(19+14)=9
    (21+10)-(3+15)=13
    (1+32)-(3+13)=17

    Thanks for that! The first one is definitely right. Such an easy solution too, how did I miss that?

    The second one though is probably wrong. I believe it needs to be a 1 digit answer, so it's probably not 32. I'll keep looking though!
