Numerical question is incorrect it is 5 not 2.


Editor's Note: Thanks Tracy for your contribution. However, if you may contribute your reasons, it would be more helpful to the visitors.

As far as I understand, there are two simple series of numbers.

Series 1: 16,13,10,7
Series 2: 11,8,5,

What would be the next number in the mixed series:

16 - 11 - 13 - 8 - 10 - 5 - 7 -

Let other visitors decide the answer!

Don't correct CORRECT answers

Tracy,

Get off the computer and do your homework.

The answer was obvious to everyone else who passed 7th grade.

Think before you post "corrections" to correct answers. ;/

Answer is : 2

Series 1: 16,13,10,7
Series 2: 11,8,5,(2)

It is simply abstract thing with numeric values.

Like on the first comment, try to check the initial values as Series 1 and result deducted by 5 is Series 2.

Series 1:16 - 5 = 11 :Series 2
Series 1:13 - 5 = 8 :Series 2
Series 1:10 - 5 = 5 :Series 2
Series 1:7 - 5 = (2) :Series 2

So completing the abstract result for Series 2: You'll have 2 as the answer.

Regards.

ANSWER IS 2

I agree, the answer is 2. Just subtract the initial value series by 5 and consecutively subtract it by 5. So the answer is : 2

the answer is 2....just subtract 5 from the no. and add 2.....for eg..
16-5=11
11+2=13
13-5=8
8+2=10
10-5=5
5+2=7
7-5=2
so 2 is the next number

The solution is subtract 5 than add 2, subtract 5 than add 2, and so on. The end is 7 subtract 5 which equals 2.
