    the bottom is alternating between 24 and 12: the next number is has a 24... make em all the same denominator and see how the top is changing...

    Wouldn't you just divide the first and second to find the rate of change?

    to see the pattern here; turn everything into fractions with the SAME denominator.

    the tops will do this if you do: 23,22,21,20,19,18,17,16,15,14,13,12.... The next one in the series is: 17/24 if I kept track of it :)
