Given that the following are true:
44 and 182 make 101
118 and 197 make 76
Then, solve this:
143 and 72 make ____?
The pattern is derived from the first two numbers in each line (e.g. 44 and 182). The solution should be used as a check to confirm you have the correct pattern (i.e. if you think you found the pattern, use the pattern on 44 and 182 to confirm you get 101).
To produce a given solution from the two given numbers, the first of the two numbers will need to change in some way.
The solution is logical.
