My friend is very good at puzzles. so i thought of creating one by myself and try to see if he can solve. Finally I succeeded and he gave up. Interested people can try.

Hint: use all four arithmetic operations to get the sequence or logic

    $\begingroup$ Is the 0 required in front of the 3 at the top of the leftmost triangle, or can I just treat it as a 3? $\endgroup$ Oct 10, 2018 at 16:29
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. we need 0 for consistency in the logic. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @uday, no arithmetic operation would produce a leading zero. $\endgroup$

Please let me know if you see any logic that was not correct.

    $\begingroup$ Why is there a zero before the three? I understand that you had to show that it was an addition, but if that was the case, then we actually should have somehow got a "03" in the multiplication, and THEN done "0 + 3 = 3" to get the answer. More to the point, the first figure should've had a 2 digit number, since otherwise, the pattern is arbitrary. $\endgroup$
