Solutions:
1. D) (6 * 1) + (1 * 9) = 15
(15 * 2) + (2 * 9)= 48
(48 * 3) + (3 * 9)= 171
(171 * 4) + (4 * 9) = 720
(720 * 5) + (5 * 9) = 3645
2. B) 4 * 3 – 1 = 11
11 * 3 + 3 = 36
36 * 3 – 5 = 103
103 * 3 + 7 = 316
316 * 3 – 9 = 939
3. A) 9³ – 14 = 715
8³ + 12 = 524
7³ – 10 = 333……
4. B) 2^4 – 2, 3^4 – 3, 4^4 – 4, 5^4 – 5…
5. D) 8 * 2 + 2 = 18
18 * 3 – 3 = 51
51 * 4 + 4  = 208
208 * 5 – 5  = 1035….
6. C) (12 * 4) – 6 = 48 – 6 = 42
(42 * 4) – 12 = 168 – 12 = 156
(156 * 4) – 18 = 624 – 18 = 606
(606 * 4) – 24 = 2424 – 24 = 2400
(2400 * 4) – 54 = 9600 – 30 = 9570
7. C) 14 + (1 * 12) = 14 + 12 = 26
26 + (3 * 12) = 26 + 36 = 62
62 + (5 * 12) = 62 + 60 = 122
122 + (7 * 12) = 122 + 84 = 206
206 + (9 * 12) = 206 + 108 = 314
8. A) 6 + 2 = 8
8 + 8(= 3 * 2 + 2) = 16
16 + 26(= 3 * 8 + 2) = 42
42 + 80(= 3 * 26 + 2) = 122
122 + 242(= 3 * 80 + 2) = 364
9. D)

10. D) (5*1)+1 = 6
(6*2)+2 = 14
(14*3)+3 = 45
