### Example #1

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

1, 9, 25, 49, 81, ?

Solution:

Each term is increases sequentially square

1^{2}, 3^{2}, 5^{2}, 7^{2}, 9^{2}, 11^{2}.

So, missing term is 11^{2} = 121.

### Example #2

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

1, 7, 15, 25, 37, ?

Solution:

Each term obtain with +6, +8, +10, +12, +14 ….onward.

So, missing term is 37 + 14 = 51.

### Example #3

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

0, 2, 6, 12, 20, ?

Solution:

Each term obtain 1^{2}– 1 = 0, 2^{2}– 2 = 2, 3^{2}– 3 = 6 ….onward.

So, missing term is 6^{2}– 6 = 30

### Example #4

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

13, 17, 25, 41, 73, ?

Solution:

Each term obtain with +2^{2}, +2^{3},+2^{4},+2^{5}…. onward.

So, missing term is+2^{6} = 137.

### Example #5

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

6, 18, 38, ? , 102

Solution:

Each term obtain with +2^{2}+ 2 = 6, +4^{2}+ 2 = 18, +6^{2}+ 2 …onward.

So, missing term is 8^{2}+2 = 66.

### Example #6

What would be the missing term replaces in the question mark ?

2, 24, 68, 134, 222, ?

Solution:

Each term obtain with +( 11 x 2 ), +( 11 x 4 ),+( 11 x 6 ), +( 11 x 8 ) ….onward.
