## Can someone help me solve these analogies? I’m stumped.?

2 is to 55 as 6 is to?

7 is to 34 as 5 is to?

Select **the** next number in **the** series. 7, 11, 19, 35

Select **the** next number in **the** series. 298, 209, 129, 58, -4

Select **the** next letter in **the** sequence. A, F, Z, U, G, L, T

Select **the** next number in **the** series. 16, 26, 21, 31

Thank you so much. I’ve worked on so many of these today that my brain has a cramp in it.

### Jimmy answers:

(55 x 6) / 2 = 165

(34 x 5) / 7 = 24 2/7

35 + 32 = 67. I realized that the difference here is exponential — 4 then 8 then 16 then 32. By the way, the first two terms of this are 4 and 5 since 4 + 2^0 = 5 and 5 + 2^1 = 7. Continuing, 7 + 2^2 =11 and 11 + 2^3 = 19

This has a starting difference of 89 which decreases by 9 each time. The difference between 209 and 129 is 9 less, or 80. The difference between 129 and 58 is 71 (or again 9 less), and the difference between 58 and -4 is again 9 less, or 62. So the next term must be -4 – 53 or -57

No guess on the letter sequence

Add ten then subtract five is your rule here. So 31 – 5 = 26 — and the following term would be 36.
