Sequence and patterns order of easiness

To identify a pattern in a sequence you should first see if you recognise a sequence straight away. If not you should tackle this in the following order of easiness.

A consistent difference is the changing of the number in the sequence but the change is the same throughout

There is a consistent difference of 2 between each number.

So we know a consistent difference is the changing of a number, but in this case the ascending number is having 2 added onto it so the difference between differences is 2

There is a consistent difference between the difference of the sequence and that number is 2.

Here the number before the other is being multiplied by 2 so the multiplication is consistent

Divide each term by the previous term.

`6/3=2`     `12/6=2`    `24/12=2`    `48/24=2`
