Carefully go through the number series below and Find The Next Number:

23, 45, 89, 177, ?

 

Answer:

If you watch closely the series follows the sequence of;

(n x 2) – 1;

So (23 x 2) – 1 = 46 -1 = 45;

(45 x 2) – 1 = 90 – 1 = 89;

(89 x 2) – 1 = 178 – 1 = 177;

Therefore next number will be;

(177 x 2) – 1 = 354 – 1 = 353

Hence the answer is 353.
