### Brain Teasers

# Almost Looks Like RAM Amounts

What follows next in the series:

0, 2, 16, 54, 128, 250, ?, ?, ?

0, 2, 16, 54, 128, 250, ?, ?, ?

### Hint

Break down each number in the series. See if you can find a pattern.### Answer

432, 686, 10240 cubed *2 = 0

1 cubed *2 = 2

2 cubed *2 = 8 *2 = 16

3 cubed *2= 27 *2= 54

...

6 cubed *2 = 216*2 = 432

7 cubed *2 = 343*2 = 686

8 cubed *2 = 512*2 = 1024

I don't get it.

I don't either...

that was stupid.....not really a brain teaser.....i dont really get it either

The series 0, 1, 8, 27, 64 would be 0 cubed, 1 cubed, 2 cubed, 3 cubed, 4 cubed. (squared is a number times it self, cubed is a number times itself and then times itself again. I took the above series and doubled each number. Zero doubled is sill zero. One double is two. Eight double is 16.

If you factored each number in the series, you might see the cubed numbers. I thought the cubed series above may have been used before. If you aproached the problem by factoring each number, you may have seen the relationship. Sorry, if this was too hard.

Yikes! I wish I would have spell checked the above first

I thought it was good, I never would have gotten that it stumped me

Good one.

You could also repetitively taken the differences between two adjacent numbers and figured it out too.

0, 2, 16, 54, 128, 250...

Take the differences to get...

2, 14, 38, 74, 122...

Take the differences...

12, 24, 36, 48...

Once again...

12, 12, 12...

So you can add 12 to 48, add that to 122, and add that to 250 to get the next number. 12+48+122+250=432

which is the right answer.
