    $\begingroup$ Obviously this is not your own puzzle, so you should reference where it came from. Plagiarism is a pretty big no-no. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Mar 3 '17 at 13:25

Typically those kinds of problems are too broad as they can have multiple answers. Each of which is just as valid as the last. As such, these puzzles end up being "Guess what I'm thinking".

One possible answer would be 36 because it makes both oval shapes equal to 60. Another possible answer would be 25 because that cause each number set {(14,4),(29,1), (21,3)} to be equal to a multiple of three. I could probably go on.

Anyhow, the moral here is, these are too broad/too vague/not enough information.

  • $\begingroup$ I would go with 36 as the answer :) $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Mar 3 '17 at 13:20
  • $\begingroup$ Me too, but it's still too broad. More Math-y people than I could come up with other valid answers $\endgroup$ – dcfyj Mar 3 '17 at 13:21
