# What is the next number in the sequence? 55, 34, 21, 13, 8…?

The sequence is a set of numbers that follow a specific pattern.

## Answer: The next number in the sequence: 55, 34, 21, 13, 8 is 5.

Let's examine the sequence and identify the pattern and thereby find the next term.

**Explanation:**

If we observe the pattern:

- 55 - 34 = 21
- 34 - 21 = 13
- 21 - 13 = 8

So, the next number would be 13 - 8 = 5.
