256

Multiply by four to get the next number.

They are ....16 4 1

512 / 2 = 256 256 / 2 = 128 128 / 2 = 64 64 / 2 = 32 32 / 2 = 16 16 / 2 = 8 8 / 2 = 4 4 / 2 = 2 2 / 2 = 1

A single number, such as 256196144100643616 does not represent a sequence.

Multiply by four to get the next number.

They are ....16 4 1

It is: 64

512 / 2 = 256 256 / 2 = 128 128 / 2 = 64 64 / 2 = 32 32 / 2 = 16 16 / 2 = 8 8 / 2 = 4 4 / 2 = 2 2 / 2 = 1

A single number, such as 256196144100643616 does not represent a sequence.

They are: 16/4 = 4, 4/4 = 1 and 1/4 = 0.25

128. 1+1=2 2+2=4 4+4= 16 16+16= 32 32+32= 64 64+64 = 128 128+128 = 256 256+256 =512 512+512= 1024 Each time take the answer from the previous problem and double it to find the next number in the sequence.

the next answer would be 1,024

The sequence is a geometric progression.Here, first term(a) = 1 and common multiple(r) = 4.nth term of G.P. is given by an = arn-1If we put n = 5, then a5 = 1x44 = 256.So next term in the sequence is 256.
