Good explanations… bad tie!

Watch this video a few times until you understand how the number sequences work.

“The third power” means you do this, 1 x 1 x 1 = 1, 2 x 2 x 2 = 8, 3 x 3 x 3 =27 and so on…

Carry on these number sequences (they start easy!) by making a comment and putting in the next 4 numbers.

  1. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …, …, …, …
  2. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, …, …, …, …
  3. 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, …, …, …, …
  4. 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, …, …, …, …
  5. 1, 2, 4, 7, 11, 16, …, …, …, …
  6. 1600, 800, 400, 200, …, …, …, …
  7. 8, 11, 14, 17, 20, …, …, …, …
  8. 12, 34, 56, 78, 100, …, …, …, …
