### 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

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

95,   87,   79,   71,   63,   55

Write the next two numbers in the following sequence:

64,   61,   58,   55,   A,   B

78,   76,   74,   72,   A,   B
