  6. the answer is 25...
    Because the ratio is 2:3 so the sum of the two numbers can be the possible answer ..
    Then the possible number of gmes will be..2+3=5,
    4+6=10(multiplying the ratio by two)
    6+9=15(multiplying the ratio by three)
    8+12=20(multiplying the ratio by four)
    10+15=25(multiplying the ratio by five
