Worksheet Overview

QUESTION 1 of 10

 In this worksheet, you must fill in the missing numbers in the given sequences.

Example

Fill in the missing numbers in this sequence.

A B 51 39 27

 

Answer

Look for clues from neighbouring terms to work out the rule.

Here 51 - 39  and 39 - 27  both equal 12.

This means that the rule for the sequence is that each term goes down by 12.

B will be 51 + 12 = 63.

A will be 63 + 12 = 75.
