# Please explain and answer: Find next number in series: 23, 29, 41, 43, 47, 61, 67, _

Dear Student,

Given series  :  23 , 29 , 41 , 43 , 47 , 61 , 67 . .

Here we can see that each numbers from the given series are ' prime numbers ' .

And we know prime numbers from 23 , As  :

23 , 29 , 31 , 37 , 41 , 43 , 47 , 53 , 57 , 61 , 67 , 71 . .

Here we can see that we take gap of two prime numbers and then write three consecutive prime numbers , So

Next number will be  =  71 , As we can see that in given series we write two prime numbers after game of two prime numbers ( 61 and 67  )

Therefore,

23 , 29 , 41 , 43 , 47 , 61 , 67 , 71                                              ( Ans )

i think so the next number will be 83 because the difference between 1 and 4 is of 20 as 43-23=20. so the difference between 8 and 4 will also be of 40 .
