## drpick 3 years ago What is the next number in the pattern: 3, 6, 7, 14, 15, 30, 31, 62, 63, …

1. ParthKohli

This pattern looks like this - we have a number, then we have its double, then we have the next, then the double

2. ParthKohli

next number would be the double of 63

3. aussy123

126

4. aussy123

3+3=6,7 7+7=14,15 15+15=30,31 31+31=62,63 63+63=126

5. ParthKohli

What is the 8th number in the pattern: 20, 12, 4, -4, …?

9. drpick

10. ParthKohli

This is an arithmetic sequence

11. aussy123

20-8=12 12-8=4 4-8=-4 -4-8=-12 -12-8=-20 -20-8=-28 -28-8=-36<------------ 8th number in the pattern

12. ParthKohli

Delete it ^

13. aussy123

???

14. ParthKohli

Delete it... because people aren't allowed to be given answers

15. aussy123

No people aren't allowed to give JUST answers with out a direct explanation, I clearly showed him how Ive gotten the answer I have...

16. ParthKohli

You're late. You shouldn't have given the answer.

17. ParthKohli

@aussy123 people like drpick love the answers. they don't wanna see the explanation.

18. drpick

Yeah i just dont want the answer...i want to know how to do it SMH

19. ParthKohli

I told you how to do it, yet you want the answers.

20. drpick

well your kinda boring to explain

21. ParthKohli

Users like you make the site look bad.

22. drpick

and you still get mad because i don't give you a medal

23. ParthKohli

No. I don't want a medal. I just want you to take a medal away from her.

24. drpick

why???

25. ParthKohli

26. ParthKohli

27. ParthKohli

@Tomas.A would you explain? That's what amby's are made for :)

28. Tomas.A

ParthKohli says truth.

29. aussy123

I will encourage and guide those needing help, and not just give them an answer.....I didnt just give him the answers I clearly worked it out for him..

30. drpick

yeah what an epic fail SMH

31. ParthKohli

@aussy123 If you really want to help, you will guide the asker and won't give the answer

32. Tomas.A

he needs to work them out himself especially when someone else is trying to help him, and you just pop there and ruin all his hard job because it's much harder to guide person than solve yourself.

33. ParthKohli

The biggest challenge of the site is to explain the answer fiends and the answer snipers of how the site really works

34. aussy123

Dude ParthKohli you happy now you have the medal...so now you can stop harassing me over helping someone...and I gave steps and everything I just didnt write it out in words... Many people on here work it out the same way

35. ParthKohli

I have the medal from Tomas, not the asker. and I don't care about medals, get that? I want the site to be a better place. @TuringTest would like to speak more on the topic

36. drpick

@aussy123 im sorry for getting you into this problem

37. aussy123

its nothing, because it clearly shows that I showed the work ive done and I clearly didnt just give the answers...as long as you understand, thats all that matters

38. drpick

thanks thats why i gave you the medal

39. ParthKohli

@aussy123 Can you tell me who does that?

40. ParthKohli

I'd be happy to know the names of the rule breakers

41. aussy123

lol
