# What is the next number in the series: 4, 12, 6, 9, 8, 6,__?

In order to guess the next number we need to recognize the pattern in the series.

## Answer: The next number in the series: 4, 12, 6, 9, 8, 6,__ is 10

We can see the odd terms(4, 6, 8) and the even terms(12, 9, 6) form a pattern in the given sequence

## Explanation:

We can see, 12 - 3 = 9,

9 - 3 = 6

Since 4 +2 = 6,

6 + 2 = 8,

the next term will be 8 +2 = 10

### Hence the next number in the series: 4, 12, 6, 9, 8, 6,__ is 10
