1. Each term is half the previous term.

A sequence where a particular number is added to or subtracted from any term of the sequence to obtain the next term in the sequence. It is often call arithmetic progression, and therefore often written as A.P. An example would be: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, ... In this sequence 2 is added to each term to obtain the next term.

256 works, if each term is the square of the one before it

You start with the number 4, then multiply with the "common ratio" to get the next term. That, in turn, is multiplied by the common ratio to get the next term, etc.

The next term is 939.Each term is one less than (4 times the previous term).

The pattern is +2 /2 +3 /3 +4 /4, and the next term would be +5, or 8.

The next number in the sequence 2, 4, 16, 64 is 256.

The next term is 939.Each term is one less than (4 times the previous term).

Each term is double the previous term and so the next term will be 64

The next term in the sequence (not the next sequence) is 76.It is obtained by using n= 6 int(n) = (29n4 - 338n3 + 1363n2 - 2158n + 1128)/24 for n = 1, 2, 3, etc

what are the next 2 numbers in this sequence: 20 , 1 ,18 ,4 ,9 ,1
