Answer: 87.
Just turn the picture upside down in your head.

 

Puzzle 2. The four-digit numbers

Answer: 2581 = 2.
Try to count the number of circles in each four-digit number. For example, 6 has one circle, 8 has two of them, and 6889 has six! Got it?

Puzzle 3. A numerical pyramid

Answer: D = 1345; E = 2440.
The bottom numbers are connected to the upper level. First, add the numbers in the bottom line: 198 + 263 = 461.
Now you see that the number you got is greater than its neighbor above: 461 > 446.
Subtract these numbers: 461 — 446 = 15.
If you check the rest of the pyramid, you’ll get 15 in each case.
Ta-dah! Here’s the key.

 

Puzzle 4. A box of chocolates

Answer: diagram B.
It’s just some simple math:
How many caramel candies are there in the box? 30 — 10 = 20.
And how many coconut candies are there? 25 — 10 = 15.
Now you can find out how many plain chocolate candies were there in the box! 50 — (20 + 15 +10) = 5.
