The sequence this series seems to follow is 1+5/(5*1), 2+5/(5*2), 3+5/(5*3), 4+5/(5*4) So, next number will be 5+5/(5*5)=5.2 and so on...

It can also be written as (2/1), (5/2), (10/3), (17/4) ...... Denominators are just 1,2,3,4,5 etc., But numerators are 2, 5, 10, 17 whose difference are 3, 5, 7 etc., So the next numerator must be 17+9 = 26 And hence by that format the next number is 26/5 = 5.2.

In series 6,4,1,2,2,8,7,4,2,1,5,3,8,6,2,1,7,1,4,1,3,2,8,7,6, how many pairs of successive numbers have a difference of 1 each?

Find the next term in the series- 0, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 24, ?

Some tips: 1. It is related to one of 3 terms- 3,4 or 5 2. It is 3 digit number 3. 0=1, 1=1, 2=2
