Guest Report post Posted April 13, 2009 * 8723, 3872, 2387, ? = 7238 {Cyclic permutation of numbers} * 1, 4, 9, 18, 35, ? =68 Difference of successive terms 3,5,9,17 Difference of successive terms 2,4,8,.... * 23, 45, 89, 177, ? = 355 compare the series with 22,44,88,176,.. * 7, 5, 8, 4, 9, 3, ? =10,2 formed by two series.... 7,8,9,.... 5,4,3,.... * 11, 19, 14, 22, 17, 25, ? = 20,28,... Formed by two series 11,14,17,..... 19,22,25,..... * 3, 8, 15, 24, 35, ? =48 Difference of successive terms 5,7,9,11,... * 2, 4, 5, 10, 12, 24, 27, ? =54,58 Multiply first term by 2 , ad 1 to get next term, multiply by 2 add 2, multiply by 2 add 3,........... * 1, 3, 4, 7, 11, 18, ? =29 add previous two terms to get next term.... * 99, 92, 86, 81, 77, ? 74 difference of successive terms 7,6,5,4,3,..... * 0, 4, 2, 6, 4, 8, ? =6,10 Formed by two series 0,2,4,.... 4,6,8,..... * 1, 2, 2, 4, 8, 11, 33, ? = 37,148 add 1, multiply by 1 add 2 multiply by 2, add 3 multiply by 3..... * 1, 2, 6, 24, 120, ? =720 factorials. * 1, 2, 3, 6, 11, 20, 37, ? =68 successive difference of terms 1,2,3,5,9,17 successive difference of terms 1,1,2,4,8,..... * 5, 7, 12, 19, 31, 50, ? =81,... add previous two terms to get next term.... * 27, 82, 41, 124, 62, 31, 94, 47, 142, 71, 214, 107, ? = 322,161 Alternatively multiply by 3, add+1 and divide by 2 27*3 +1=82 82/2 = 41 41*3 +1=124 124/2 =62 .... * 126, 63, 190, 95, 286, 143, 430, 215, 646, 323, 970, ? =485,1456 Alternatively divide by 2 and multiply by 3, +1 126/2 =63 63*3+1=190 190/2 =95 95*3+1=286 * 4, 7, 15, 29, 59, 117, ? =235,469 Multiply by 2 add and subtract 1 alternatively. 4*2 -1 =7 7*2+1=15 15*2-1=29 29*2+1=59 * 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 4, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 5, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 4, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 5, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 4, 2, 3, 2, 3, 2, 5, ? If we remove all the alternate 2 we get 3,3,4,3,3,5,3,3,4,3,3,5,3,3,4,3,3,5, ie a repeating sequence of 3,3,4,3,3,5. Ans = 2,3,2,3,2,4,2,3,2,3,2,5 * 4, 4, 341, 6, 4, 4, 6, 6, 4, 4, 6, 10, 4, 4, 14, 6, 4, 4, 6, 6, 4, 4, 6, 22, 4, 4, 9, 6, ? Clearly if we remove double sequences of 4 we get 341 ,6 ,6 ,6 ,6 ,10, 14, 6, 6 ,6 ,6 , 22 , 9 , 6 If we remove sequences of 4 6's we get 341,10,14,22,9, which do not forms any sequence so,,,,,this question seems to be wrong......
