What is the missing number in the series?
4,9,20,43,90??
Ans: 185.
diff between 4 and 9 is 5 (4+1)
diff between 9 and 20 is 11 (9+2)
diff between 20 and 43 is 23 (20+3)
diff between 43 and 90 is 47(43+4)

James your approach is prefect and the solution for this problem is 185 as you found out.
yep
current No - (90 + 5)
Prev No - 90
so 90 + 95 = 185
4 9 20 43 90 ?
the difference
4 9 20 43 90 ?
5 11 23 47 ?
6 12 24 48
so the 3rd series is 6 12 24 (48) it doubles the digit.. adding 48 in 47 so the figure is 95 now we got main difference series.....adding 95 in main series 90 then ans is 185.
Hi,
The missing number is 185.
Here is the explanation
4 9 20 43 90
9-4=5
20-9=11
43-20=23
90-43=47
(5*2)+1=11
(11*2)+1=23
(23*2)+1=47
so, in the same way (47*2)+1=95
So, x-95=90.
Therefore x= 185.
Thanks
answer is 186
answer is 186&379
How can I draw up a formula that number series?
Thank you!4,9,20,43,90??
Hi Isabele,
The formula is defined as
The difference between 9-4= 4+1 is 5
20-9=(5+5)+1 is 11
43-20=(11+11)+1 is 23
90-43=(23+23)+1 is 47
185-90=(47+47)+1 is 95
so the answer is 90+95(add last number+difference number) = 185
4 + 4 + 1 = 9
9 + 9 + 2 = 20
20 + 20 + 3 = 43
43 + 43 + 4 = 90
90 + 90 + 5 = 185
185
In this series each 2nd no is incremented by 1 with double of the previous number.
9=4*2+1
20=9*2+2
43=20*2+3
90=43*2+4
so, next number will be 185 as
185=90*2+5
