# Number Series 3

**To find the next number in a series, you may need to add or subtract.**

In this series of 11-plus verbal reasoning quizzes you have to find the number that continues the sequence in the most sensible way. You will be offered a sequence of numbers, and you have to find the missing number each time. Some 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 of the numbers in this quiz need you to work with hundreds and even thousands, so keep a pencil and paper handy to do subtraction and multiplications.

An example has been done for you. Enjoy Number Series quiz number 3.

*2 4 6 8 10 (?)*

*12*

*11*

*14*

*2*

The correct answer is

*12*because the numbers are going up by 2 each time. 10 + 2 = 12.
