The rule of this pattern is -2 + 6 +4 so the next number would be 16.

Either 214 or 216 would both fit the pattern of the five terms given.

The sequence changes by multiplying with different numbers: from 3 to -6 (* -2), -6 to 12 (* -2), 12 to 4 (* 0.33), and 4 to 20 (* 5). If we continue this pattern, 20 multiplied by 0.5 gives us 10. So, the next number is 10.

Notice the pattern: 12^2 11^2 10^2 9^2 .. So the next term is 6^2=36
