    16


    1 - 4 is 3
    4 - 9 is 5
    9 - 16 is 7
    16 - 25 is 9

    You need to look for patterns, just like Aquatic points out. So this one is adding odd numbers.

    What's the job you're going for?

    square(1) = 1
    square(2) = 4
    square(3) = 9
    [COLOR=red]square(4) = 16[/COLOR]

    got it:thumbsup:

    Oh Marina I see!

    I thought it was adding subsequent odd numbers; 3,5,7,9, unless I've got something wrong, which I may have done. Your way looks much better!

    161 - 4 is 34 - 9 is 59 - 16 is 716 - 25 is 9



    It's square numbers :P

    1*1 =1
    2*2 = 4
    3*3 = 9
    [gap] 4*4 = 16
    5*5 = 25

    *edit* Was beaten to it, didn't refresh thread was too busy making that banner

    What is the sector/job type? I've seen that can greatly influence the difficulty of the tests.

    A car left Canterbury at 7.12 am and arrived in Birmingham, 180 miles distant at 10.57 am. What was its average speed in miles per hour?

    Ans: 48 miles/hr

    Distance = 180 miles
    Time difference = 3 hours 45 mins or in terms of hours (3.75 hours) cos 45 mins = 75% of an hour (if that makes sense)
    speed = distance/time = 180miles/3.75hours = 48 miles/hr

    Think it's right
