But do you pretend the 4 is there or do you search for a solution without the 4.

Yes. But, but, the 4 isn't there. There must be a reason. They just didn't leave it out for no reason.

the answer is 6 ? I guess 4 number is missing to test your awareness ? If you "manually" (not using i * i -1 formula) subtract the values you can easly make a mistake.
