What are the next three numbers in the sequence.

- algebra-sequences -
**MathMate**, Sunday, February 6, 2011 at 1:03pmI believe the sequence should read:

**8**,12,18, and 27, in which case the common ratio is the quotient of any two consecutive elements, such as:

12/8=1.5,

18/12=1.5, or

27/18=1.5

So the next number is therefore

27*common ratio

=27*1.5

=40.5

And the next number is

40.5*common ratio, ....
