# What is the next number? 3 4 6 9 13 18 24

Sequence is defined as a list of numbers (or items) that exhibits a particular pattern.

## Answer: The next number in the given sequence, 3, 4, 6, 9, 13, 18, 24 is 31.

Let's identify the pattern and find the next number.

**Explanation:**

Given: 3, 4, 6, 9, 13, 18, 24, ?

From the given sequence, we see that the pattern followed is:

3 + 1 = 4

4 + 2 = 6

6 + 3 = 9

9 + 4 = 13

13 + 5 = 18

18 + 6 = 24

Thus, we see that every resulting term in the given sequence is getting added to consecutive integers.

Therefore, to find the next term we will add 24 + 7 = 31
