"Fill in the blank space" in the square

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!

Re: "Fill in the blank space" in the square

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.

Re: "Fill in the blank space" in the square

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"

Good, that matches my solution for that square.
