    Answer is in white

    The answer is 104 or 8^2 + 23

    The set is derived from N^2 + Pn
    Where P is the set of all primes and P1=2, P2=3, P3=5 etc.

    1^2 + 2 = 3
    2^2 + 3 = 7
    3^2 + 5 = 14
    4^2 + 7 = 23
    5^2 + 11 = 36
    6^2 + 13 = 49
    7^2 + 17 = 66
    8^2 + 19 = 83
    9^2 + 23 = 104

    Welcom Miss Hill,

    Yes it is wrong. But nice try for a blonde! (just joking ) If you want to know the answer highlight the response by Mathguru. We post answers to puzzles in white so that you don't see it if you don't want to.
