# 3 is to 9 as 7 is to what?

Relevance

3 +6 = 9, so 7+6 = 13

Multiply

3*3 = 9 so 7*3 = 21

Exp:

3² =9, so 7² =49

Or an infinite number of equations...

• Unanswerable. It could be 21 (3x3=9, 3x7=21) or it could be 49 (3^2=9, 7^2=49). Or you could come up with complicated formulas for other numbers.
