Reasoning / Mental Aptitude

How to Solve Questions Based on Number Series

Most of the number series can be solved by addition and subtraction (Multiplication and Division being the Supersets for these). In plain English that means you need to find what to add or subtract to find the next (or missing) number in the series. We will understand the concept by solving a few questions and then you can attempt some on your own.

Example 1: Find the next number in the series: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, Answer:
Example 1: Find the next number in the series: 1, 3, 6, 10, 15,
Answer:
Looking at the series we find that the series is an “INCREASING” sequence.
So we try to find what is being added. Here the series is
1, 1+2, 1+2+3, 1+2+3+4
or Add 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on to the last number.
1+2 =3, 3+3 = 6, 6+4 = 10, 10+5 = 15
So the answer is 15+ 6 = 21.

Ans (a)

Example 2: Find the next number in the series: 87, 80, 74, 69, 65, Answer:

Looking at the series we find that the series is a “DECREASING” sequence. So we
Looking at the series we find that the series is a “DECREASING” sequence.
So we try to find what is being subtracted. The series is
87, 87 - 7 = 80, 80 – 6 = 74, 74 – 5 = 69, 69 – 4 = 65
So the answer is
65 - 3 = 62

Example 3: Find the next number in the series: 40, 15, 30, 25, 20, 35,
Answer:
Looking at the series we find that the series is a “MIXED” sequence.
By mixed series we mean that it is composed of two different series.
i. e. 40, 30, 20, … (decreasing) and 15, 25, 35,
(increasing)
40, 30, 20, … (decreasing) and 15, 25, 35, (increasing) The trick here is to know

The trick here is to know which series will give us the answer. We see that the missing number belongs to the decreasing series. Ignoring the other series the answer is 20 – 10 = 10
