2, 3, 8, 27, 112, 565, ?

### Hint

The number sequence begins from the left; therefore, 2 is the first position and 27 is the fourth position.### Answer

The answer is 3396.How? From the hint, we know 2 is the first position, 27 is the fourth position, and 3 is the second position, 8 the third, 112 the fifth, 565 the sixth. We will say x is the current number, y is the position x is in the series, and z is the answer for the next number in the series. With this, the problem can be solved with the formula (xy)+ y = z.
