Q:

Find the missing number in the given series ?

15, 51, 216, 1100, ?, 46452

A) 5660 B) 6560
C) 6750 D) 6630
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: D) 6630

Explanation:

Let first no. be "k" and multiple be "l"...start value of y with 3
then,
[(k x y) + {l x (l-1)}]
Thus, we get

15 x 3 + 3 x 2 = 51
51 x 4 + 4 x 3 = 216
216 x 5 + 5 x 4 = 1100
1100 x 6 + 6 x 5 = 6630
6630 x 7 + 7 x 6 = 46452

Therefore, the missing number is 6630.

Q:

Find the missing number in the given number series?

625, 625, 600, ?, 475, 875

A) 545 B) 700
C) 675 D) 725
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: B) 700

Explanation:

Here the given number series 625, 625, 600, ?, 475, 875 follows a pattern that

625

625 + (0 x 0) = 625

625 - (5 x 5) = 625 - 25 = 600

600 + (10 x 10) = 600 + 100 = 700

700 - (15 x 15) = 700 - 225 = 475

475 + (20 x 20) = 475 + 400 = 875

 

Hence, the missing number in the given number series is 700.
