**Time for the answer**

**You are completely correct if… one of your answers was 40!**

First problem: 1 + 4 = 5

Second problem: 2 + 5 (adding the previous sum, 5) = 12

Third problem: 3 + 9 (adding the previous sum, 12) = 21

Fourth problem: 8 + 11 (adding the previous sum, 21) = 40

But, what’s the other answer?!

**The 2nd answer is revealed to be… 96!**

First problem: 1 x 4 + 1 = 5

Second problem: 2 x 5 + 2 = 12

Third problem: 3 x 6 + 3 = 21

Fourth problem: 8 x 11 + 8 = 96

**Did you solve both answers?**
