then what goes next

Sep 9th, 2015

35

the difference is added by one and so on

11-5 =6

18-11=7

26-18=8

35-28 = 9

and  difference is added by one and the series goes on

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.....thank you

the trick is very simple

you should add one with the previous difference

5,11,18,26,

for example

take the first two numbers 5 and 11

the difference of the numbers = 11- 5 = 6

6 is the difference ,

so,6+1 = 7

now to get the third number add this 7 with the highest number

so,

11 + 7 = 18

so it will become 5,11,18..............

to find the next number find the last differnce

18-11=7

add 1 with it as done befors

7+1 = 8

now add this 8 with the highest number(last number)

so it will become

18+8 = 26

thus it became 5,11,18,26.......

similarly,to find the next number

take differnce = 26 -18 = 8

8+1 = 9

add this 9 with the highest number

so,26+9 = 35

thus it became 5,11,18,26,35................

imilarly,to find the next number

take differnce = 35 -26 = 9

9+1 = 10

add this 10 with the highest number

so, 35 +10 = 45

thus it became 5,11,18,26,35,45...........

you can proceed in this way and get

45+11= 56

56+12=68

68+13=81

81+14=95                    ( note that we are adding 1 to the difference( 11,12,13,14) and adding it the last number(highest number)

5,11,18,26,35,45,56,,68,81,95.....................and so on
