Question
What the next number should be? 11,22,13,26,15,30,17

A. 28
B. 32
C. 34
D. 47

Hello, Draoderick.

The correct answer is C (34).

In the sequence, you first add 11 (11+11=22). Then, after subtracting 9, you add 13 (13+13=26). After subtracting 11, you add 15 (15+15=30). Then 13 is subtracted, so the next step would be to add 17. 17+17=34.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
John
