What the hell is this crap?  Is it just to early to comprehend this or am I just that math dumb LOL, Even the example don't make sense to me.  I think I'm going to email the teacher and ask her to start sending home instruction manuals for this stuff LOL,   How am i supposed to help my kid with his homework when i don't even understand it. 

 Thank you to those who pointed out the pattern and explained to me how this works.   I'm sure i would have gotten it eventually but i really needed the help this morning LOL..

To those who are calling us who couldn't figure it out right away idiots.  I really hope that you are not in any type of teaching, management or training position.  And i really hope you don't call your own children idiots for not understanding a simple math problem.   Everybody learns differently and needs things explained to them in a different way.   Once you find that way its clicks and BAM they get it.  I have trained many employee's in at my job,  Some who got it right away and some who needed just that little extra explanation and I would never call any of them a idiot.   I always tell them their is no such thing as a stupid question.  We need to ask questions to learn

I remember those.

Refrain from e-mailing the teacher, it's simple. I think you're just too tired right now. It's a fun, puzzle kind of thing.

When you go from right to left the number goes up one. When you go up and down it goes up by ten. It's trying to get them to shift gears quickly.

The ones going across increase by ones. The ones going down increase by tens.

#2....the top empty block would be 72. The blocks to the left of 82 would be 80 &81.

Imagine a giant numbered grid. Each problem is a little section of that grid. Just plug in the missing numbers
