Each number in the pyramid is the sum of the two numbers immediately below it. Fill in the pyramid with the missing numbers.

28 in base 11 is 2 times 11 plus 8;
29 in base 11 is 2 times 11 plus 9;
Adding these, we get 4 times 11 plus 17
which is 5 times 11 plus 6 -- that's
56 in base 11.

Why are people thinking in multiple bases? It was merely a logic problem. Beefing it up by thinking in base 11 is just making a mountain out of a molehill. Really now.
