Here we will learn how to find the rule of a number pattern.
Sometimes the set of numbers have something common in them. They follow a pattern or rule.
3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24
In the above number pattern, we have to skip count in three (add 3) to continue the sequence. So, to obtain the next number all you have to do is add 3 to the previous number.
Hence the next number will be 27
