## Number Series Questions Tricks and Example (Tricks to solve number series questions including examples)

Here are some ways to help you solve number series questions for bank exams:

**1. Difference Method:**

In this method, you check the difference between two consecutive numbers. If the difference remains the same, the series follows a common difference pattern. For example:

Here, 3 is added to each number. So the next number will be 11 + 3 = 14.

**2. Multiplication Method:**

In this method, you check the ratio between two consecutive numbers. If the ratio remains the same, the series follows a common multiple pattern. For example:

Here, each number is multiplied by 3. So the next number will be 54 x 3 = 162.

**3. Alternate Difference/Multiplication Method:**

In some series, difference or multiplication follows an alternating pattern. For example:

Here, 6 is added to the first number, the second number is divided by 3, then the first process is repeated. So the next number will be 7 + 6 = 13.

**4. Sequence Method:**

In some series, numbers are added or subtracted in a certain order. For example:

Here, 3 is added and 1 is subtracted alternatively. So the next number will be 6 + 3 = 9.

**5. Multi-step Method:**

Some complex series may involve a combination of several steps. To solve these series, you need to look at the pattern carefully and differentiate the different steps.

**Practice makes strong!**

To be successful in bank exams, it is important to practice different types of number series. You can practice previous years' question papers and mock tests. Also, help can be taken from online resources and books.

**Some additional tips:**

- Time management is important. Don't waste too much time on complicated questions.
- If you can't recognize a pattern in a series, don't try to guess. Proceed to the next question.
- Maintain accuracy. Avoid giving wrong answers in haste.

With these tips and practice, you will be able to solve number series questions in bank exams easily.
