first: each blank decreases by 8 ( four decreases to 32 from 64, or 32/4)

second: four increases for a total increase of 20, so 20/4 is five increase in each blank.

I think I have an answer to both the first and second problem.

Problem 1-It appears you are subtracting 8 each time.

64-8=56

56-8=48

48-8=40

40-8=32

64,56,48,40,32

Problem 2-It appears you are adding 5 each time. 61+5=66

66+6=71

71+5=76

76+5=81

61,66,71,76,81
