Solved examples of number series in Quantitative aptitude
As we know, questions related to number series are very important in Quantitative aptitude section, So, today I’m going to discuss some problems of number series. These are just for your practice. I have already discussed this chapter in previous session i.e. Sequence and Series. Read this article first, then go through these examples.

**Example1:** In the following given series, find out the wrong number.

1, 3, 10, 21, 64, 129, 356

**Solution:** As i have discussed in previous session, operations applied on series can be: Addition or subtraction, multiplication or division, squaring or cubing and combination of any.

Series 1 3 10 21 64 129 356 Difference 2 7 11 43 65 227

By studying the above series, you’ll come to know that, this is a combination of operations. Operation used is discussed as follows:

Alternately using:

Therefore, last number of series is wrong i.e.356

**Example2:** Find the next number of the following series:

672, 560, 448, 336, 224,?

**Solution:** Check out the difference of each number first:

Series: 672 560 448 336 224 Difference: 112 112 112 112

Difference between all the terms is same i.e. 112

Therefore, next term will be

**Example3:** Find the next term of following series: 82, 67, 54, 43, 34

Solution: The operation used in series is discussed as follow:

Continuing like this;

Therefore, 27 is the next term.

**Example4:** What should come in place of question mark?

1721, 2190, 2737, 3368,?

**Solution:** As we can see, first term is approximately equal to the cube of 12, so firstly we will try to solve it with the cubes.

Now you can find, that there is some pattern. So, continuing like this, we get

**Example5:** Find the next term of following series:

8, 24, 12, 36, 18, ?

**Solution:** Relation between the terms is as follows:

Continuing like this:

Therefore, next term is 54

**Example 6:** Find the next term of the following series:

47, 33, 21, 11, ?

**Solution:** The pattern used in the series is as follows:

I will soon update the questions for your practice.
