UPPER LEVEL SSAT SAMPLE QUESTION: SEQUENCES
Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of frequency problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Upper Level SSAT.
What Are Sequences?
Sequences are number sets that follow a rule that places the numbers in a definite order. For example, “1, 3, 5, 7, 9” is a sequence that results from adding 2 to the first number to get the next number, then adding 2 to that number, and so on. Sequences can follow many patterns. The patterns are the result of the rule.
SSAT Sample Question for Sequences
Find the missing number in the sequence:
___, 29, 35, 41, 47
This is an arithmetic sequence in which 6 is added to get each successive term. The first term must be 29 minus 6 = 23.
