******** 177 *****************************************************
Ya... Kinda neat solution bravo!
120, 123, 129, 141, 147, 159, 174, ____
******** 177 *****************************************************
The answer is 177. The pattern is actually two series of every other
number. The first series goes 120 (+9) 129 (+18) 147 (+27) 174 {the
number after the blank would be 174 + 36}. The second series adds 18
every time 123 (+18) 141 (+18) 159 so the next number would be 18
more than 159 so it is 177.

******** 192 *****************************************************
I see where the 192 comes from but the half in the middle is too
arbitrary. I wouldn't do that to you.
120, 123, 129, 141, 147, 159, 174, ____
******** 192 *****************************************************
T.J. Class5/6 - we think the answer is 192 because of the pattern of
increases. 120,123,129,141,147,159,174,____ here is how we solved it.
The increases are
1, +3 up one 6, (3+3+3+3)+(3) up one
2, 3+3 double 7, (3+3+3+3)+(3+3) double
3, 3+3+3+3 double
4, 3+3 half
5, 3+3+3+3 double

******** 195 *****************************************************
OK not bad but I don't think that the next number "had" to be 6
120, 123, 129, 141, 147, 159, 174, ____

I took the differences of all the number so those numbers were
3, 6, 12, 6, 12, 15. Then I took their differences and thoise
numbers were 3, 6, 6, 6, 3. So the next number had to be 6.
Then I did 6+15 because 15 was the difference between 159 and 174.
Then the sum of 6=15 was 21 so I added 21 to 174 because 174 was the
last number in the pattern. That was 195. That's how I solved the
equation. Thank you for reading it.
I think the answer is 195,because you add
120 , 123 , 129 , 141 , 147 , 159 , 174 , 195
+3 +6 +12 +6 +12 +15 +21
+3 +6 -6 +6 +3 +6
There for our answer is 195.

******** 176 *****************************************************
Am I missing something?
120, 123, 129, 141, 147, 159, 174, ____
******** 176 *****************************************************
Lynae Cook 176
Highlands, Saugus, USA
I say 176 because at first the pattern is +2 +6 then you take one
away from each number (2 and 6)and that is equal to the diffrence
of the two numbers after 147.
