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?

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!

Whoooooooooooshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

It's late, that is my excuse and I am sticking to it

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 … 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
