Learning from each prior question I've designed. Working toward a standard-style question, though not quite there yet. In the interim, here's a tester..

12, 15, 19, 29, 44, 51, ... ?

Your options are:

  • 61
  • 65
  • 66
  • 70
  • 72

Hint:

Just as haiku follows a set format, I'm working to a set format here. To get from one term to the next, I employ three set mathematical calculations - although in this quiz, the boundary for 'calculation' is not clear. Is it 3? Or is it 4? We'll decide once the solution comes out.

I gonna try my attempt:

12
(+3)=
15
(+4)=
19
(+3+4+3)10=
29
(+(3*4)+3)15=
44
(+3+4)7=
51
(+(3*4)+3)15=
66
