  • Difference between first and second term is 25, which is square of 5.
  • Third term of the series is 84.
  • Difference between second and third term of the series is 36, which is square of 6.
  • Fourth term of the series is 133.
  • Difference between third and fourth term of the series is 49, which is square of 7.
  • Following the same pattern, difference between fourth and fifth term of the series should be square of 8, i.e.. 64
  • Therefore,
  • Fifth term of the given series should be 197.
