Question

I believe that 16 should be 14. I think it's based on the pattern 12+2=14+4=18-4=14-2=12x2=24/2=12. Why else would the number 12 be shown 3 different times? If it was based on factors and prime number and the like, then 12 would only have to be shown one time.

Which is the odd one out

12,14,18,16,12,24,12.

And why?

The last 12? 12+2=14+4=18-2=16-4=12*2=24*4 would be 96. So first we are adding, then subtracting, then multiplying using same pattern.

12 (Second occurance) is the odd one.

12+2=14, 14+4=18

18-2=16, 16-4=12

12*2=24, 24*4=96 and not 12

next two numbers would be

96/2=48, 48/4=12

12,14,18,16,12,24,12......................It is 24 because the sum of the two numbers equal a odd number except 24. For 12 (1+2=3) For 14 (1+4=5) and so on until 24 (2+4=6) I think that is the most logical if you can draw a hint from the title................ :huh:

I would have to say it is the last 12.... the last number should be 96, pattern is +2 +4 -2 -4 x2 so it should be x4, anyone agree?

24. Saturday has 8 letters. twice that is 16, not 24

That is almost there - but why is it treble and not double?

There is a reason

Well done for spotting the days of the week, but 7 numbers are a bit of a give away

fair bit of kudos for the other reasons out there!

My theory...

Here goes: 14

They're twice the number of letters in the days of the week written in English, starting from Monday.

Tuesday is the only day with an odd number of letters. :)
