# What number would complete the pattern below? 14, 5,18, 24, 15, 28, 34, __

Number pattern is a pattern or sequence in a series of numbers that shares a common relationship between the numbers to develop a pattern

## Answer: The next number in the given pattern 14, 5,18, 24, 15, 28, 34, will be 25

Let's try to figure out the pattern from the series given

**Explanation:**

Given series: 14, 5,18, 24, 15, 28, 34

Let's look into a relationship between these numbers to identify the pattern

Below is the pattern

14 – 9 = 5

5 + 13 = 18

18 + 6 = 24

24 – 9 = 15

15 + 13 = 28

28 + 6 = 34

Hence, we see that the pattern is every three consecutive numbers are getting subtracted by 9, added by 13 and added by 6 and the cycle keeps repeating for the next set of three consecutive numbers also

Hence, the next set will be as follows:

34 – 9 = 25

25 + 13 = 38

38 + 6 = 44
