6-61.

This problem is the same as the otherdiamond problems, but the # boxes are now labeled ''*x*'' and ''*y'*'.

Add and then multiply −3 and −6 to fill the empty boxes.

What numbers add to 29 and multiply to 28?

See the diamond above.

Begin by subtracting 8 from 6 to find ''*y*''. Then multiply 8 by ''*y*'' to find the product.
