Need help figuring out a pattern
Posted:

The pattern is
127, 863 12, 789 _______ 135 18
This is exactly how the problem is presented to me.
I am racking my brain to figure out the way of the pattern. If any math whiz out there can give me insight, thanks a million. I have been given the answer to the underline: 1287, but for the life of me, I cannot find out why! The commas and spaces are throwing me off!
Thanks so much!
