    10/10 ty AZ team
    mam que no.5
    8…8….14..38…98
    take diff 0…..6…24…60
    again take diff 6…18..36
    so 6*3=18…6*6=36….6*9=54
    54+60=114+98=212 it is one of the possibility of ans

    1. No.

      Because 6*1 is 6. Not 6*0 is 6

      If 6*3, 6*6 follow.
      Then 6*0 should also follow
