Find the next three terms of the following sequence.

(i) 8, 24, 72, …

Solution :

To find the next three, first we have to find out the pattern followed in sequence.

Pattern :

Multiplying the first term by 3, we get the second term.Multiplying the second term by 3, we get the third term.

4th term = 3 (72) = 216

5th term = 216 (3) = 648

6th term = 648(3) = 1944

Hence the next three terms are 216, 648, 1944.
