    9 Equals to 90

    9 * 10 = 90

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

    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.

    There is a mistake in the question.

    2 = 2, not 6.
