**Direction (11-15): There are two rows given and to find out the resultant of a particular row we need to follow the following steps: - **

Step 1: If an odd number is followed by an even number then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.

Step 2: If an even number is followed by a perfect square then the resultant will be the difference of that square number and the even number.

Step 3: If an even number is followed by another even number (but not a perfect square) then the resultant will be the addition of both the numbers.

Step 4: If an even number is followed by an odd number (but not a perfect square) then the resultant comes by multiplying the numbers.

Step 5: If an odd number is followed by another odd number then the resultant will be the division of first number by the second number.

**Q11. Find the sum of the resultant of two rows? **

** 8 49 10 **

** 8 7 36
**

Even number is followed by a perfect square so=49-8= 41

41 10

an odd number is followed by an even number= 41+10=51

In row-2

Even number is followed by an odd number so=8*7= 56

56 36

Even number is followed by a perfect square = 56-36=20

So, the addition of resultant of two rows = 51+20 = 71

**Q12. Find the difference of the resultant of two rows? **

** 5 8 14 **

** 14 12 7**

An odd number is followed by an even number so=5+8= 13

13 14

An odd number is followed by an even number so=13+14= 27

In row-2

Even number is followed by an even number so = 14+12= 26

26 7

Even number is followed by an odd number so = 26*7= 182

So the difference of resultant of the two rows = 182-27=155

Q13. Find the value of X if the addition of the resultant of first and second row is 32?

** 4 25 X **

** 7 12 6**

Even number is followed by an perfect square number so=25-4 = 21

21 X

In row-2

Odd number is followed by an even number so = 7+12 = 19

19 6

An odd number is followed by an even number so=19+6= 25

The addition of the resultant of the both rows = 32

So, resultant of first row is 32-25=7.

Now for row-1 21 X = 7

So, the only possible value of X can be 3.

**Q14. Find the value Y if the difference is the resultant of two rows is 113? **

** 8 18 7 **

** 25 5 Y
**

Even number is followed by another even number so=8+18= 26

26 7

Even number is followed by an odd number so=26*7 = 182

In row-2

an odd number is followed by another odd number= 25/5=5

5 Y

Row 1 - Row 2=113

182 – Row 2=113

Row 2= 69

So, the value of ‘Y’ must be = 64

**Q15. Find the multiplication of the resultant of two rows? **

** 35 7 5 **

** 16 11 4**

An odd number is followed by an odd number so=35/7= 5
