Now, given that this problem was deemed simple enough to be assigned to first graders, it leads me to believe that the solution isn't gained by some complicated formula involving ratios, multiple instances of addition and subtraction, or the like.

In other words, the most simple way of getting an answer is likely the correct one. Since that rules out combinations of the sides, we're left with the most simple solution: adding the numbers on the diagonal.

From bottom left to top right, 23+6+11=40. So, it makes sense that the sequence from bottom right to top left should also equal 40. 20+6=26, which, when subtracted from 40, gives us 14. J.

Now, to double check our work:

S+B+G=40

J+B+P=40.

Thus, J is the most logical answer.

20-6=14

Therefore the number has to add to 6 to make 14

So

7 +6=14

The letter is C
