# What is the number of the parking spot?

One needs to find the number under the car.

• Is this original??? I have seen it elsewhere long time ago, it was a classic question for primary schools/ elementary interviews... Oct 10, 2018 at 8:01

If you look at the numbers upside down, they read 86, __, 88, 89, 90, 91. The number that fits this pattern is, of course, 87.

Therefore, the space as the picture is currently viewed should be filled in with L8.

• L8 was my answer also! :) Jun 27, 2014 at 10:27
• Just one comment. Everything you said here is true. But you bolded L8 like it is the answer, meanwhile it is not, since the questions asks for a number of the parking slot, not "what is written there?". Jun 27, 2014 at 11:16
• You can probably tell that this answer was intended to be mostly facetious.

I believe the most obvious answer is:

There is a usual sequence of numbers, we're just looking at it in the wrong direction. The numbers of the parking spots must be viewed from the outside in, as a driver would see them, which is upside-down from the current view.

The shown numbers are: 86, ??, 88, 89, 90, 91. Therefore the answer is 87.

The Number is 87. Just rotate the image 180 degree.
