(Probably doesn't belong to asp.net section but I don't know where to put this question)

I'm going thru some interview questions and this is one of the questions is

7 to 34 is as 5 to

11
43
42
13

I think the correct answer is 43 because if I divide 34/7 I get 4.8 and 43/5 I get 8.8

not sure

Are you sure the possible answers you have specified above are the correct ones?

Usually it would be :

7 = 3 + 4 i.e. 34
5 = 4 + 1 i.e. 41 or 5 = 3 + 2 i.e. 32

Yeah, I have a screenshot of it.

I did see that answer online but the possible answers are from a dropdown and they're the ones I listed.

This is for an interview at a law firm. This is on the application I have to fill in.

ok this might be far fetched but at least i get one of your results:

7 to 34 = 7+34 = 41 = 4+1 = 5

5 to x = 5+x.... so now trial and error and the only one that fits is 11 as 5 + 11 = 16 = 1+6 = 7

LOL slightly flawed....

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

to be honest I also think it's 41 and it's a typo but they may want you to think outside the square... don't dismiss it could be on purpose...  especially for a law firm

Thanks. I submitted the application. It's probably wrong in the application and they didn't have a place to type in.

What a long application process!

7*3-4 = 5*4-3
7+3-4 = 5+4-3

reading "to" as "2"
7234/2  and 5242/2 are both prime

7*6=42,42+1=43 reverse the number is 34
5*6=30,30+1=31 reverse the number is 13


so 13 is the answer
