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**
