Type P

1 8 5 11 12 7 () - answer = +7 -3
+6 -4
+5 -5
+4 -6 ANSWER = 11

Type P

6 13 28 59 122 () -answer = x2 +1
x2 +2
x2 +3
x2 +4
x2 +5 ANSWER =249

Type K

Times the two numbers outside the brackets and take away the smaller number.
17 x 2 =34-2 =32
13x3=39-3=36
9x4=36-4=32


Hope this helps

Sorry missed out a letter in the sequence:

1 8 5 11 7 12 7 ()


1+7 = 8 -3 =5
5+6 =11-4=7
7+5= 12-5=7
7+4=11

The first column of adding is decreasing by +1 each time.
The second part of the sum is increasing by -1 each time.[/b]

Another type P has me baffled:

225 64 27 8 ?

The answer is 1 but I'm damned if I can see why.

Can anyone help?

They are the cube numbers backwards

5 cubed [225], 4 cubed [64], 3 cubed [27], 2 cubed [8]

so next number is 1 cubed = 1x1x1 = 1

Surely 5 cubed is 125 not 225? Or am I just stupid.

Yes, it looks like there is an error in the original question.
225 64 27 8 should be 125 64 27 8 ?
