I am as thick as elephant sh*te when it comes to Maths, but it took 15 seconds for me to understand and answer this.

I am not too good at these type of puzzles, but surely, unless you change direction completely, the answer should be 1.   scratch

WW, I think you are correct.

I got the logic of the puzzle right, that is, you multiply the central number 5 by the outer numbers

in the top half of the circle, and the result is diametrically opposite, but as you say, I got he ‘direction wrong.

The question mark in the upper right represents ‘something’ times 5 = 5.

So the missing number is indeed 1.

Well done you.

LOL!!!!, confusing isn't it?

I had the outer 5 (at ‘twenty to’ clock position) x the central 5 = 25.

It is the other way round, 1 x central 5 = outer 5.

To be fair, it could indeed be either 1 or 25, but I insist it's 25 and will stamp my feet unless everyone agrees.

LOL!!!!, feel free to stamp.

Here's my final take on things.

The misssing number is '1'.

The outer numbers in the upper half of the circle, ie ‘quarter to to quarter past’ are multiplied

by the central number ‘5’ to give the diametrically opposed answers in the lower half of the circle.

That is my final explanation, and bear in mind, Admin said I was a genius on an earlier post, and

she knows what she is talking about LOL !!!!!!  Embarassed   Very Happy
