Find the numerical code from the images.

You don't get any hints.

I'm a bit confused what you're asking here

The middle tile is the multiple of all the other tiles divided by the digit which there is 3 of.

Code pattern

To get the number in the middle,

  1. multiply all the four numbers orthogonally next to it, then

  2. multiply by all the numbers diagonally on the corners, except one which corresponds to the background colour (cyan, magenta, yellow, or black, in the CMYK colour system).

How it works

First one:

Yellow is bottom left in the CMYK system, so ignore the bottom left number $4$ but multiply by all the others. Orthogonally, $4\times5\times2\times7=280$. Diagonally, $2\times7\times4=56$. Product is $280\times56=15680$.

Second one:

Magenta is top right in the CMYK system, but apparently we should actually ignore one of the $2$s, not the top right number $6$, and multiply by all the others. Orthogonally, $1\times3\times2\times5=30$. Diagonally, $2\times6\times3=36$. Product is $30\times36=1080$.

Third one:

Black is bottom right in the CMYK system, so ignore the bottom right number $3$ but multiply by all the others. Orthogonally, $3\times1\times2\times4=24$. Diagonally, $1\times8\times3=24$. Product is $24\times24=576$.

Fourth one:

Cyan is top left in the CMYK system, so ignore the top left number $1$ but multiply by all the others. Orthogonally, $9\times4\times4\times1=144$. Diagonally, $1\times2\times3=6$. Product is $144\times6=864$.
