## What are Number Patterns and How to Sovle it?

#### What is a number pattern?

Number pattern is a

**series of numbers**that follows a**particular pattern**or sequence. There is a common connection between all the numbers. For example, the pattern between 0, 3, 6, 9, 12 is that the next number is derived by adding 3 to the previous number or in other words we are skip counting by 3 to get the next number.#### What are different types of number patterns?

There are many types of numbers patterns such as:

- Arithmetic patterns
- Geometric patterns
- Harmonic patterns
- Fibonacci patterns

However, for our primary level mathematics we will mostly focus on arithmetic patterns where the number sequence is generated by either subtraction or addition of numbers.

#### 1. What are the missing numbers in the number pattern :

2230 , 2330 , 2430 , ____, ____, 2730

In the pattern above, the hundreds digit changes.

2230, 2330, 2430, ____, ____, 2730

The rule is to

2230, 2330, 2430, ____, ____, 2730

The rule is to

**add 100**to get the next number.#### 2. What are the next three numbers in the number pattern :

3854 , 3864 , 3874 , ____, ____, ____

In the pattern above, the tens digit changes.

3854 , 3864 , 3874 , ____, ____, ____

The rule is to

Add 10 to 3874 to get the first missing number:

Add 10 to 3884 to get the second missing number:

Add 10 to 3894 to get the third missing number:

3854 , 3864 , 3874 , ____, ____, ____

The rule is to

**add 10**to get the next number.Add 10 to 3874 to get the first missing number:

Add 10 to 3884 to get the second missing number:

Add 10 to 3894 to get the third missing number:
