Fill in the Missing Number in Sequence Exercise

This exercise trains you to look for patterns between numbers.  It’s training you to make sense of data.  Find x for each sequence. Write out approaches to each problem, you’ll want to look at them later to compare notes and methods. Answers and explanations tomorrow.

  • 1, 2, 4, x, 16, 32, 64
  • 30, 23, x, 9
  • 84, x, 66, 57
  • 63, 61, 59, x
  • 32, 40, 24, 16, 24, x  8
  • 1, 2, 6, 24, x  120
  • x, 12, 18, 10, 6, 14, 5, 0, 10 (this one is very difficult, break it into three parts to find pattern)
  • 8, 25, 52, 89, x

 

Respond to question with question exercise.

Those who are curious ask more questions than they make statements. Practicing asking a question in response to a question teaches you to not assume you know what the asker is asking and to ask for clarification so you better understand what’s being asked.

Answer the following questions with a question.

  • Can I have your belt?
  • Have you been to Italy?
  • Do you want to get dinner?
  • Can I punch you in the face?
  • Why are people evil?
  • Is the personal political?
  • What’s the most popular drink here?
  • Is blue your favorite color?
  • Will coronavirus kills me?
  • Should I commit suicide?

Example:

Question: Can I have your belt?
Response: Are you going to hit me with it?
