00:00:01.000 --> 00:00:09.080
Complete the following pattern: what, eight, seven, what.
00:00:10.240 --> 00:00:12.360
We don’t know the first number in the pattern.
00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:16.920
The next number is eight and then seven.
00:00:17.600 --> 00:00:21.800
Seven is one less than eight.
00:00:22.800 --> 00:00:26.720
So this means we’re taking away one each time.
00:00:27.800 --> 00:00:35.920
To find the first missing number, we need to add one to number eight, which is nine.
00:00:37.160 --> 00:00:46.480
Now we know the pattern starts with number nine, nine, eight, seven, six.
00:00:47.320 --> 00:00:51.600
The second missing number is six.
00:00:51.600 --> 00:01:02.680
The missing numbers are nine and six, nine, eight, seven, six.
