Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet you have to work out the next two numbers in a sequence.

 

Always look at the gaps between the numbers in a sequence.

 

Example

Write the next two numbers in the following sequence:

 

95,   87,   79,   71,   A,   B

 

Answer

Work out the difference between the numbers in the sequence and see if you can find a pattern.

 

Here we have:

95 - 87 = 8

87 - 79 = 8

79 - 71 = 8

 

The numbers go down in 8s.

 

So the next two numbers are

A = 71 - 8 = 63

B = 63 - 8 = 55

 

The sequence reads.

95,   87,   79,   71,   63,   55
