I predict that this problem will involve adding and consecutive numbers.

Read:
Carl looked at the page numbers on the open book right in front of him. The left and right page numbers added to 333. What are the page numbers?

Clarify:
Nothing to clarify.

Solve:
Well first I tried 360 and 361 because I knew they had to be consecutive numbers. Unfortunately, that was wrong and the answer to that was 321. Because that was quite a bit off the answer I needed, I tried 165 and 166 and the answer to that was 331, which was very close. I knew the numbers had to only be 1 extra value, so I did 166 and 167 and it worked.

First I tried 45+46 which didnt work. the answer to that was 91, so I decided to skip a few numbers and did 48+49 and that was the right sum. So my answer was 49 and 48.

Fill in the missing digits given that no digit is repeated.
20
+    5
    8
First, I realised that I had to make the first equation equal more than 10, so I tried 9+4=5 and then I did 0+7 equals 8 because I carried 1 to the 0 and that worked too. Then I did 2+1 equals 3 because they were the only digits that haven’t been repeated. My final answer was…
209
+ 175
   384
