# What is the next number in the series 6 18 20 10 30 32 16?

**Solution:**

Sequence and series are used in mathematics as well as in our daily lives.

A sequence is also known as progression and a series is developed by sequence. Sequence and series is one of the basic concepts in Arithmetic.

Sequences are the grouped arrangement of numbers orderly and according to some specific rules, whereas a series is the sum of the elements in the sequence.

For example, 2, 4, 6, 8 is a sequence with four elements and the corresponding series will be 2 + 4 + 6+ 8, where the sum of the series or value of the series will be 20.

The given series follows the sequence as

6 × 3 = 18

18 + 2 = 20

20 / 2 = 10

10 × 3 = 30

30 + 2 = 32

32 / 2 = 16

The next number will be

16 × 3 = 48

Hence, the required number is 48.
