#### 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 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 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:
