Question

# Choose the pattern follows the rule "+ 8".

- 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, ...
- 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, ...
- 120, 128, 136, 144, 152, ...
- 500, 505, 510, 515, 520, ...

Hint:

### In mathematics, a number pattern is a series of integers that occur in a specific order. Patterns often describe the inverse relationship between numbers. Patterns can also be used to describe numerical sequences. Here we have given to find a series of numbers that the pattern follows the rule "+ 8".

So here first we will analise all the series and then finalise which one is the best fit for the +8 rule.

## The correct answer is: 120, 128, 136, 144, 152, ...

### So as we know that a pattern or sequence in a series of numbers is called a number pattern. Generally, this pattern builds a connection between all integers.

Some numerological pattern types are:

There are two typical patterns for number sequences:

- Arithmetic Sequences
- Geometric Sequences

The following are some examples of Number Patterns' unique sequences:

- Square Numbers
- Cubic Sequence
- Triangular Numbers
- Fibonacci Numbers

We have been given a rule of +8. Now we will look at all the given patterns.

1. 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, ...

Here the pattern that is followed is +2, so this is not the correct option.

2. 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, ...

Here the pattern that is followed is +4, so this is not the correct option.

3. 120, 128, 136, 144, 152, ...

Here the pattern that is followed is +8, so this is the correct option.

4. 500, 505, 510, 515, 520, ...

Here the pattern that is followed is +5, so this is not the correct option.

120, 128, 136, 144, 152, pattern follows + 8 rule. Because:

120 + 8 = 128

128 + 8 = 136……

So the correct pattern is 120, 128, 136, 144, 152, ....

Here we were given a rule of +8 and we were supposed to find the series which goes by this rule. There are numerous different sorts of number patterns. They could be a series of even or odd numbers, multiples of a specific number, ascending or descending, etc. Here the rule of the pattern was to add 8, hence the series is 120, 128, 136, 144, 152, ...
