Look at this series: 8, 22, 8, 28, 8, . . .

What number should come next ?

What number should come next ?

This is a simple addition series with a random number, 8, interpolated as every other number.

In the series, 6 is added to each number except 8, to arrive at the next number.

In this Series 8 is common number.

Now add 6 with 22 or 28.

22 + 6 = 28

28 + 6 = 34.

So the answer is 34..

The sum of age 5 children born at the interval of 2 year each is 40 year. Find out the age of eldest child?

let's age of youngest child = x

Then the age of 5 children can be written as x,( x + 2) ,(X + 4 ),(x + 6) and( X + 8).

Age of elders child = X + 8

Then ,

X + (X + 2 )+ (X+ 4) +( X + 6) + (X + 8) = 40

5 X + 20 = 40

5 X = 40 - 20

X = 20 / 5

X = 4

Age of elders child = X + 8

4 + 8 = 12.

All these 6 members of a family A, B, C, D, E, F are travelling together. B is the son of C but C is not the mother of B, A and C are a married couple. E is the brother of C. D is the daughter of A. F is the brother of B. Who is the wife of E?
