Detailed Answers:

Number Triangle – The answer is determined by working out the number in the triangle bottom to top. The second row up is the sum of the two squares below plus 10. The only number you have in the third row is the sum of the two squares below plus 15. You should then be able to work out the third row by doing the same and assume that the last row is the sum of the boxes below plus 20.

This gives an answer of 1515
