Q: Number Sequence Puzzles : Find missing number in triangle

saransh gupta Solve this question plz send me answer

 
If we made an actual crossword with the CCCCs from here, how difficult would it be compared to your average cryptic?
@EricTressler has there been an update to Tametsi relating to DPI/scaling?
things are suddenly tiny and blurry at the same resolution
 
probably harder than the average (though crossing letters would help)
 
hmm, seems like windows just got itself in a twist. I went to check the scaling settings, and it instantly jumped to a higher scale, so now I reduced the scale back to 100%, and restarted, and it seems fine
@Deusovi technically for some CCCCs they have helped, because people sometimes give that information as hints

i wouldn't oppose a cccc hint
 
looks like another &lit...
 
Should we have a persistent feed that pops up when there's a new CC? Perhaps due to all the ongoing drama, I missed again that there's a new one.

@jafe My clues end in "!" if, and only if, they're &lits.
 
@msh210 hah!
 
I thought that might've been clear from stuff I've said in the past, which is why I thought this one would go quickly.
18 hours ago, by msh210
CCCC sorta-hint: unfeasible vs. infeasible is not relevant. I used what I thought was the more common word. Sorry for any resulting confusion.
Oct 10 at 8:43, by msh210
A sort-of hint for the CCCC is that the definition part is not an exact part-of-speech match for the answer. But you probably should've realized that anyway, since the definition part doesn't have a clear part of speech altogether.
Want more?
I can do a letter, too, if desired.
 
yeah a letter please
 
@OmegaKrypton L is the fifth.
