# What number is missing in the pattern______ 145, 256, __?__, 478, _____?

## 267    367    287    387 Hint:

## The correct answer is: 367

### The given sequence is __, 145, 256, __, 478, __We will find the rule used to write the sequence.We will subtract the second term from the third termWe will see if we get a constant that we can use to write the complete pattern.256 – 145 = 111Now, we will add this constant from the third term. And, we will continue the process till we find the fifth term. If the fifth term matches the given sequence, then the rule we used is correct.256 + 111 = 367367 + 111 = 478This matches the fifth term of given sequence. So, we used the right rule.So, the fourth term is 367.

For such questions, we should know the basic operations. When the rule used to write the pattern is not mentioned, we have to use all four operations to check the pattern. The operations are addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication.
