c Can you help me step by step with solving number series strategy

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

To solve number series questions , you must critically look at the series and attempt to estimate what rule the series is taking

Example

Consider the following series: 26, 21, , 11, 6. What is the missing number

To solve such a question you must critically analyse the series.

for example I can see that my series is decreasing and that subtracting adjacent numbers in the series yields 5.

26-21 =5 and 11-6 =5

therefore, to find the missing number we subtract 21-5 =16

Example 2

3, 6, 12, 24, find the next term in the series.

looking critically at the series shows that each number is a multiple of 3. such that

3= 3*1

6=3*2

12=3*4

24=3*8

x= 3*16 = 48
