Question

# Write the rule for this pattern.

40, 44, 48, 52

- add 4
- multiply 2
- subtract 4
- divide by 2

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 a series of 70, 60, 50, 40 and we have to find the rule used for this pattern.

## The correct answer is: add 4

### 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 the series 70, 60, 50, 40. The rule used in this is:

70 - 10 = 60

60 - 10 = 50

50 - 10 = 40

The difference between each number is 10. The rule for this pattern is to subtract 10 each time.

Here we were given a series of numbers and we have to find the rule used in the series. 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. So the rule used here is subtracting 10 from each term.
