# Read the numbers and decide what the next number should be. 3, 4, 7, 13, 14, 17, 23,…?

**Solution:**

The given sequence of numbers is

3, 4, 7, 13, 14, 17, 23,…

We know that

4 - 3 = 1

7 - 4 = 3

13 - 7 = 6

17 - 14 = 3

23 - 17 = 6

The difference in the pattern 1, 3, 6 ….

Adding 1, 3 and 6 is repeated

So the next number should be 23 + 1 = 24

Where 24 - 23 = 1

Therefore, the next number should be 24.

## Read the numbers and decide what the next number should be. 3, 4, 7, 13, 14, 17, 23,…?

**Summary:**

The next number in 3, 4, 7, 13, 14, 17, 23,… should be 24.
