# Number Series 2

**Given a series of numbers, it's up to you to work out what comes next.**

Some of these 11-plus verbal reasoning questions will be straightforward, and you will just have to work out the relationship between the first two numbers, then between the second and third and so on. Some will be more difficult, requiring you to add different numbers in the sequence.

Often the numbers increase by a certain amount, but don't be lulled into a false sense of security - occasionally they start high and decrease. Be alert, be prepared, be vigilant and be prepared for the 11+ exam!

If you are doing these quizzes in order you will have learned about Fibonacci numbers in quiz 1. Another famous mathematician will be revealed during this quiz.
