# What is the next number? 3, 6, 4, 8, 6, 12, 10, ...

Let us see the relationship between the given numbers and identify a pattern.

## Answer: The next number in the sequence 3, 6, 4, 8, 6, 12, 10, ... is 20

Look at the explanation given below to find the next number in the sequence.

**Explanation:**

In our sequence, 3 is the first number and 6 is the next number

We know that 3 × 2 = 6 which is our second term and the third term is 6 – 2 which is 4.

The fourth term in our sequence is 8

Let us follow the same above logic and see that 4 × 2 = 8 and the next term to 8 is 8 - 2 = 6.

The fifth term in our sequence is 6

The sixth term is 12

The next term to 12 is 12 – 2 which is 10

So, according to the above logic, the next term to 10 is 10 × 2 = 20

### Therefore, the next number in the sequence 3, 6, 4, 8, 6, 12, 10, ... is 20
