QUESTION: 6

Look at this series: 14, 28, 20, 40, 32, 64, ... What number should come next?

Solution:

The series is 14, 28, 20, 40, 32, 64
Take three terms at a time. The notation be as follows:-
Let, First term = a = 14
It is evident that Second term= 2*a = 2 * 14 = 28 and,
The Third term = Second term - 8 OR ( 2*a - 8 ) = 28 - 8 = 20
Now consider the third, fourth and the fifth term.
Let, Third term = a = 20
It is evident that Fourth term= 2*a = 2 * 20 = 40 and,
The Fifth term = Second term - 8 OR ( 2*a - 8 ) = 40 - 8 = 32
Similarly consider fifth, sixth and the seventh(term to be found).
Let, Fifth term = a = 32
It is evident that Sixth term = 2*a = 2 * 32 = 64 and,
The Seventh term ( term to calculated) = Second term - 8 OR ( 2*a - 8 ) = 64 - 8 = 56

QUESTION: 7

Look at this series: 201, 202, 204, 207, ... What number should come next?

Solution:

In this addition series, 1 is added to the first number; 2 is added to the second number; 3 is added to the third number; 4 is added to the fourth number; and go on.

Solution:

This is a simple subtraction series.
Each number is 35 less than the previous number.
(544 - 35 = 509) (509 - 35 = 474) (474 - 35 = 439) (439 - 35 = 404)...

QUESTION: 10

Look at this series: 8, 6, 9, 23, 87 , ... What number should come next?

Solution:

8 x 1 - 2 = 6
6 x 2 - 3 = 9
9 x 3 - 4 = 23
23 x 4 - 5 = 87
87 x 5 - 6 = 429
