Can you find the pattern?

0, 3, 1, -2, -6, -3, -1, -4, -12, -9, -3, -6, -18....

0, 3, 1, -2, -6, -3, -1, -4, -12, -9, -3, -6, -18....

### Answer

The pattern has to do with 3. It's plus 3 divided by 3, minus 3 and multiplied by 3. 0 plus 3 equals 3, divided by three equals 1, minus three equals -2, and multiplied by three equals -6, and so on.Hide Answer Show Answer

oh commooon. this is stupid i could make multiple by 7 divide by 4 add 17 take a square root round it and write the first numbet, guess it!

I don't think it was stupid! I didn't get it but I was close.... the pattern was there, I just couldn't quite get all the parts together! I thought it was a great teaser!

AAAHHHH i almost get the answer but i miss counted gr8 teaser and metallica RULEZ

What's the next number?

good one

Good teaser tinman! I enjoyed working this one out.

good one! i figured out the three thing but a little different than how it was showed in the answer. i like math teasers.

this isn't right because -3-3 would make 6 because when you put 2 minuses together they make a positive o really this isnt right

-3-3 would turn into -3+-3 and that equals -6.

Good job. Got it without too much trouble!!

Good one, I didn't get the answer right though
