Use inductive reasoning to predict the next three numbers in the sequence.

1, 0, -2, -5, -9,

• college mathematics -

1 - 1 = 0
0 - 2 = -2
-2 - 3 = -5
-5 - 4 = -9

What do you think will come next? What should be subtracted from -9?

• college mathematics -

1-1=0
0-2=-2
-2-3=-5
-5-4=-9
-9-5=-14 (would it be this)

• college mathematics -

Right. You're on the right track now to find the next two numbers.

• college mathematics -

predict the next three number in the pattern 12, 15, 18, 21, 24
