Puzzle #25: Gues The Next Number In the Series


Examine the following series of numbers below or in the image above carefully, and use the sequence in which the numbers are formed to predict or guess the next number.

211, 207, 198, 180, ...What is the next?.







The answer is 162.

Here is the reason.
In the series above, the next number is determined by the result of the sum of each individual figure which is then subtracted from the overall figure. For example.

2+1+1 which is equal to 4 subtracted from 211 gives us 207.
Similarly, 2+0+7 = 9 - 207 = 198.
In the same manner 1+9+8 = 18 - 198 = 180.

So 1+8+0 which is equal to 18 subtracted from 180 gives us 162.
So the correct answer is 162.
