You also need to keep track of the time. Write down the time taken by you to solve those questions. Now practice our shortcut tricks on number series and read examples carefully. After this do remaining ten questions and apply shortcut formula on those math problems. Again keep track of timing. You will surely see the improvement in your timing this time. But this is not all you need. You need more practice to improve your timing more.

Tips

  • Math section in a competitive exam is the most important part of the exam. That doesn’t mean that other sections are not so important.

Types 

  • Perfect Square Series
    This Types of Series are based on square of a number which is in same order and one square number is missing in that given series.
  • Perfect Cube Series
    This Types of Series are based on cube of a number which is in same order and one cube number is missing in that given series.
  • Geometric Series
    This type of series are based on ascending or descending sequence of numbers and each continuous number is obtain by multiplying or dividing the preceding number with static number.
  • Ration Series
    This type of series are based on ration series, where sequence are in form of ratio in difference between the numbers. All numbers are arranged in ratio sequence order.
  • Two stage Type Series
    A two stage Arithmetic series is one in which the formation of arithmetic series are obtain from differences of continuous numbers themselves.
  • Mixed Series
    This type of series has more then one different order are given, which has arranged in alternatively in a single series. This mixed series Examples are describes in separately.

FAQs on Number Series Tips and Tricks for Government Exams

1. What are number series?
Number series refer to a sequence of numbers that follow a specific pattern or rule. Each number in the series is derived from the previous numbers by applying the same rule consistently. It is a common topic in mathematics and aptitude exams.
2. How to identify the pattern in a number series?
To identify the pattern in a number series, you need to carefully observe the given numbers and look for any consistent rule or relationship between them. Common patterns include arithmetic progression (adding or subtracting a constant number), geometric progression (multiplying or dividing by a constant number), or a combination of both. Analyzing the difference or ratio between consecutive numbers can often help in identifying the pattern.
3. How can I solve number series questions more efficiently?
To solve number series questions efficiently, it is important to practice and develop a systematic approach. Start by identifying the pattern and then try to predict the next number based on the pattern. If you are unable to find the pattern, try different mathematical operations like addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division on the given numbers to see if any rule emerges. Eliminate answer choices that do not follow the pattern and focus on the most likely options.
4. Are there any common tricks or shortcuts to solve number series questions?
Yes, there are a few tricks and shortcuts that can help in solving number series questions quickly. One such trick is to look for squares, cubes, or other common mathematical sequences within the given series. Another trick is to check for patterns in the difference or ratio between consecutive numbers, as this can often provide valuable clues. Additionally, applying the concept of prime numbers or identifying repeating patterns can also be useful shortcuts.
5. Can you provide an example of solving a number series question?
Certainly! Let's consider the following number series: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, ?. To solve this, we observe that each number is obtained by multiplying the previous number by 2. So, the next number in the series would be 64 * 2 = 128. Therefore, the missing number in the series is 128.
