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
