Complete the sequence 9, 10, 11,13, 15, ? , 21,25

Explanation

  • Here, difference between first and second term is 1, i.e.. 9 + 1 = 10
  • Difference between second and third term is 1, i.e.. 10 + 1 = 11
  • Difference between third and fourth term is 2, i.e.. 11 + 2 = 13
  • Difference between fourth and fifth term is 2, i.e.. 13 + 2 = 15
  • Difference between fifth and sixth term is 3, i.e.. 15 + 3 = 18
  • Difference between sixth and seventh term is 3, i.e.. 18 + 3 = 21
  • Difference between seventh and eighth term is 4, i.e.. 21 + 4 = 25
  • Applying this pattern we are getting the exact series terms.
  • So, series is 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 18,21, 25
  • Missing term is 18.
