Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've this board, like shown in attachment, that has 2 rows. Each rows have 4 places. I'm trying to find a general function that gives me the reflection of the numbers.

I've 2 questions, so I put each question in a item.

a) Like shown in case a) of the attachment, If I write the number 1, my function must return the number 4. If I write the number 2, the function must return the number 3. If I write the number 5, must return the number 8, and if I write the number 7, it must return the number 6. And the opposite. If I write the number 4, I'll the number 1, etc...

As you can see, I've divided the card in half, and I'm trying to get the number that is on the opposition position of the card. I'm looking for a general equation, that answers me this for any row of any size. In this example, I've use a row with 4 position, but it could have been 7, 10, 15, etc...

Anyone can help me?

b) On the case b) it's a little different. I'm doing a kind of displacement. If I write the number 1, I'll get the number 3. If I write the number 2, I get the number 4, and the opposite. I'm also looking for a general function that returns me the correspondent value for any size of the row.

Any help?

Thanks,
