Can you solve this puzzle? They say only people with an IQ with 120 and over are able to figure this out Please look at the following problem. If: 2 + 3 = 10, 7 + 2 = 63, 6 + 5 = 66, 8 + 4 = 96 Then: 9 + 7 =???

I hate math 'cause I've never been good at it. I like English and words not numbers.

However, I think I got this one....finally....and pm'd Mike my answer. I'm just waiting for confirmation. :laugh:

Everyone who answered 144 is correct. For each equation, it's the first number times the sum of both numbers.
