12. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

it should be 6.i.e. the series 3, 3, 5, 4, 4, 3, 5, 5, 4, ?
3, 3, 5
4, 4, 3
5, 5, 4
6, 6, 2

13. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

in my view it should be 266 i.e.
the series 2,10,42,130,?
2
2*5+0 = 10
10*4+2 = 42
42*3+4 = 130
130*2+6 = 266

14. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

the answer is 6.

15. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

hi...
2,10,42,130,?

i got the answer as 642...
1+2^1=2
2+2^3=10
10+2^5=42
42+2^7=130
so
130+2^9 must be equal to 642...

16. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

hey i belive the answer would be 3

17. ## Re: Try solving this tricky number Series

yeah even i think 642 is right.
