No formula/logic coming to my mind
I f i had to guess i will go with C (12)
10 + 15 = 18 + 7
if we put 12 in place
then
10+12 = 18 + 4
Also 7 + 12 = 4 + 15

Some sort of number logic coming out which is maintaining a symmetry (All internal angles are same)
So yes C (Move on)

hi..
Pretty tough for anyone not very good at geometry to be not above 700
pl see att fig..
join the lines to make a equilateral triangle..
all three vertices of bigger triangle will form 3 equilateral triangle as exterior angle = 180-120=60

so the three sides of bigger triangle will be equal ..
10+15+4=10+?+7....?=29-17=12
C

Hello Sir,

Is there any other way to solve this? This one seems tough in which we have to construct a triangle from a given hexagon!

Hi,

it will be important to draw a triangle here..
May be slightly easier if you understand that the OPPOSITE sides will be parallel and the distance between these sides will be same because of the 120 degree angle
this basically means..
1) PARALLEL sides 10 and 18..
sides in between \(15+4=?+7......?=19-7=12\)
2) PARALLEL sides 15 and 7..
\(4+18=?+10...?=22-10=12\)

and this comes from the fact that the exterior angle are 180-120 = 60 making equilateral angles..

other way would be to may be guess from the proportional lenggth as it is not given that the diagram is not as per scale..
