In the series 8, 9, 12, 17, 24 . . . the next number would be
- 29
- 30
- 33
- 35
- 41
In the series, 8, 9, 12, 17, 24 . . .
9 − 8 = 1
12 − 9 = 3
17 − 12 = 5
24 − 17 = 7
Hence, the difference between the next term and 24 must be 9 or
x − 24 = 9, and
x = 33
Hence, the next term in the series must be 33
