if 2 = 6, 3 = 12, 4 = 20, 5 = 30, and 6 = 42, what does 9 equal?

9 * 10 = 90

4*5 = 20
5*6 = 30
6*7 = 42
7*8 = 56
8*9 = 72

The answer you want is 90, but the way you wrote the question sucks. 2 = 6, but 6 = 42. Which means that 2 = 42. Now what the hell are we supposed to make of that?

2*3=6
3*4=12
4*5=20
5*6=30
6*7=42
7*8=56
8*9=72
9*10=90

So 9=90 not 72

It can also be interpreted as (n*n)+n, or as n*n+n so...

2*2+2 = 6
3*3+3 = 12
4*4+4 = 20
5*5+5 = 30
6*6+6 = 42
therefore: 9*9+9=90

Well just looking at it I assume you are looking for 90 , ignoring that 6 could equal 2 or 42.

Well, the school started, so this might have been some sort of homework.
