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! Keep the fires burning hot!

(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.

Is this your answer or from a book somewhere... and if so, where ?

It's from my Calculator. 😃

If we have to take the false premise of the first two equations as true, the answer should be 36. However the first two equations present a fallacy that a two or three digit number can equate to the sum of its digit. False.
So far from being a truism this is a false syllogism and equates to ask the following question:
... what is the meaning of patalaksabumba
I can infer that since the word pata means leg in spanish, laksa is an asian soup and bumba relates to mumbai in my mind, this means chicken soup Indian style.

If you change the rules, and follow your own conventions, no amount of pretend mathematical explanation can make up for it. 22x22= 484 and not 16, not on this planet. On mars on the other hand ... I don't know ... may be so? 🙂
