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

(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.

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