Can you figure out the missing number?

(will show submitted answers sometime this weekend)

? = 592 Because: 8 (Ball 1) x 4 = 32 (Ball 2) + 4 = 36 (Ball 3) x 4 = 144 (Ball 4) + 4 = 148 (Ball 5) x 4 = 592 (? Ball) + 4 = 596 (Final Ball)

592 Without a doubt. u(0)=8 For odd terms: u(n)=u(n-1)*4 For even terms: u(n)=u(n-1)+4

592

Sequence alternates between multiplying by 4 and adding 4.

Eg 8 x 4 = 32 32 + 4 = 36 36 x 4 =144 144 + 4 = 148 … and so on

592 would be the missing number.

The pattern is times four, plus four, times four, plus four…

592. Multiply by 4, then add 4. Repeat.

592 the repeating sequence is *4 +4

its 592

pattern is: x4 then +4

592…..*4+4

The sequence is *4, +4, *4, +4, etc.. Missing number is 592. (You’re getting too easy RK! :P)

592 The pattern is x4, +4, x4, +4…

hey tht one was easy….u multiply nd add 4alternatively…..so the answer is 592

one answer can be this: Is a series: * 4 ,+4 (repeated to infinity, but only see till 596) 1) 8*4=32+4=36*4=144+4=148*4=592+4=596

592.

592…

592 think 4s

592 that was easy and i mean really easy. i barly had to think at all. the pattern is multiply by four, add four. for the ? you had to multiply and I didn’t feel like doing that. I just looked at 596 and subtracted 4.

answer is 592.

a x4, +4 sequence

8×4 = 32 32 + 4 = 36 36 x 4 = 144 144 + 4 = 148 148 x 4 = 592 592 + 4 = 596

This took about 4 seconds ;p

4 + 4 =8 8 x 4 =32 32 +4 =36 36 x 4=144 144 +4=148 148 x 4 =592 592 + 4 =596

Answer: 592

2nd number = 1st number * 4 3rd number = 2nd + 4 and so on.

So 6th number = 5th number * 4 i.e. 148*4=592

592, by unanimous consensus

ok, will try to throw some tough ones out next week!

pattern: *4, +4, *4, +4, ….

There for missing number is 592 (148*4)

too easy – it is cover the red circle with 5 smaller circles I can’t get

Megan W| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 12:11 am? = 592

Because:

8 (Ball 1) x 4 = 32 (Ball 2) + 4 = 36 (Ball 3) x 4 = 144 (Ball 4) + 4 = 148 (Ball 5) x 4 = 592 (? Ball) + 4 = 596 (Final Ball)

Without a doubt.

u(0)=8

For odd terms:

u(n)=u(n-1)*4

For even terms:

u(n)=u(n-1)+4

Sequence alternates between multiplying by 4 and adding 4.

Eg

8 x 4 = 32

32 + 4 = 36

36 x 4 =144

144 + 4 = 148 … and so on

Kal| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 2:30 am592 would be the missing number.

The pattern is times four, plus four, times four, plus four…

Joe| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 2:32 am592. Multiply by 4, then add 4. Repeat.

Poelo| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 5:00 pmanswer is 592.

a x4, +4 sequence

Alex| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 7:05 pm8×4 = 32

32 + 4 = 36

36 x 4 = 144

144 + 4 = 148

148 x 4 = 592

592 + 4 = 596

JasonJ| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 7:11 pmThis took about 4 seconds ;p

592

Nicholas| Guest October 19th, 2007 - 7:51 pm592

rajjo| Guest October 20th, 2007 - 12:15 am4 + 4 =8

8 x 4 =32

32 +4 =36

36 x 4=144

144 +4=148

148 x 4 =592

592 + 4 =596

Rohan| Guest October 20th, 2007 - 5:51 amAnswer: 592

2nd number = 1st number * 4

3rd number = 2nd + 4 and so on.

So 6th number = 5th number * 4

i.e. 148*4=592
