Please explain reasoning, only one of the listed answers is correct - 44,9,99, or 33. Thank you.

99

2 + 3 = 5, so you have 55

6 + 3 = 9 so you have 99

• if 2 equals 55, then 4 is 110 and therefore 6 equals 165. Just my thinking of course . . . Unless you look at it as 2 is 55, 3 is 66, etc... until you get to 6 which is 99. There's several ways to look at it. So the answer is 99 in that case.
