Nob's Number Tree

At first sight the puzzle seems to be rather easy "prompting" the one to put the "15" instead of the question mark. Unfortunately, in that case the pattern is "broken" by the lowest digit in the tree - the "7".

In fact the rule is different. It is that all the digits from any two circles pointing simultaneously to the third one are summed up producing the resulting number on that circle. For example, circles "72" and "99" are summed up in the way 7+2+9+9 and resulting in the "27" on the circle to which the respective arrows point to. In that way the resulting number of the circle with the question mark on it is "12". I.e. 2+1+3+6 = 12.
