When a sequence of numbers is given, try to find how the next number is obtained starting with the first number. Do you observe any patterns in the following numbers? Subtracting 1 from the previous, starting with 15, we get the next number. Now what is the pattern? 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 We add 1 to the previous number to get the next, starting with 10. This pattern is a little more difficult: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21 We add 3 to the previous number to get the next, starting with 3.
