Fill in the Blank
 
Q Look at the first row of numerals. Figure out how the numerals in Column 1 yield the numerals in Column 2, and you'll be able to fill in not only Row 1, Column 3, but all the other blanks as well.

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
122646 576 _ _ _
91234 216 _ _
61818 _ _ _ _ _


 
A If you multiply the first numeral in Column 1 by the second numeral, and then multiply that product by the next numeral and so on, the final product will be 576. Follow suit by multiplying the numerals in each column to arrive at the numerals for the blanks.

Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
122646 576 210
91234 216 12
61818 384 96
