Solution:

2. b) 57

Solution:

3. a) 237

Solution:
11 + (13 + 1) = 11 + 3 = 13
13 + (23 - 1) = 13 + 7 = 20
20 + (33 + 1) = 20 + 28 = 48
48 + (43 - 1) = 48 + 63 = 111
111 + (53 + 1) = 111 + 126 = 237

4. e) 353

Solution:

5. c) 392

Solution:
6 x 0.5 + 0.5 = 3.5
3.5 x 1 + 1 = 4.5
4.5 x 2 + 2 = 11
11 x 4 + 4 = 48
48 x 8 + 8 = 392
