Can someone please help me with these two IQ questions. I am not sure about the first row so I have given you two different first rows.[attachment=1:3vl3hl4b]H.jpg[/attachment:3vl3hl4b][attachment=0:3vl3hl4b]2.jpg[/attachment:3vl3hl4b] Thank you!

Of course there are infinitely many solutions... For the first one, the most natural to me is to assume that each sequence going down is geometric, yielding 48^2/8 and 1^2/1. For the second, perhaps the second difference is the constant 1, yielding 48 + (48  + 1 and 1 + (1  1) + 1.

I would have said that, in the first column, each number is 2 times the previous number. 48 is 6 times 8 so I would multiply by 6: 288. In the third column the obvious answer is "1"
