36 is what i got

seems to be missing pluses between the double digits. how do you get 28?

A clue lies in the original question. "Solve if you are genius." So If everyone has the same answer or what is obvious it can't be the answer. They are looking for. Second it isn't a math problem. This puzzle is a sequence or pattern problem. There is math in that.

People put in additional things to draw a conclusion that fits what they changed in the problem. Don't change the problem.

Hold your hand in front of your face and count your fingers excluding your thumb. Do you see four or five fingers? I see five..   

Silly games!

(1+1) X (1+1) = 4
(2+2) X (2+2) = 16
(3+3) X (3+3) = 36

That is, if you're following the logic of the question.  Or, you could just assume that the first two answers are wrong, and the right answer to the final question is 1089.

Thanks...   I looked at it as accepting the first two as Truth, 11 x 11 = 4, and 22 x 22 = 16.
Assuming they were correct, the first two equations had answers that increased by four times, then the next logical step for the 33 x 33, would be to increase the next step by four... i.e. 4 x 4 = 16, 4 x 16 = 64.
Not looking at this mathematically, just plain logic.

I didn't see the "plus" signs, I know they weren't there, did they fall to the wayside !

Thanks for taking time to post.
