# Finding patterns in numbers

This video discusses how to identify patterns in number sequences. By analyzing three different sequences, the speaker demonstrates that patterns can involve adding a certain amount to each number, or multiplying each number by a certain amount. It's important to ensure the pattern remains consistent throughout the sequence.

• In the 1st pattern isn't 67 + 21= 88 ?
Why is the next number 89 in the pattern?
• There was something on the side that said the "Sal meant to say 88 but accidently said 89."
• Can a pattern alternate? ie. Add three, then subtract five, then add three again, then subtract five, etc.
• Yes
for example -
1,2,5,6,9 (+1+3+1+3)
