# Finding the next number in a sequence

Experts,

I am usually good at doing these, but now I am stumped.  I cannot figure out the next sequence in this list of numbers.  Can anyone help me with this?

The numbers are:  10, 8, 7, 14, 15, 13, 12, 24 25

Hi morinia,

As per my knowledge, It should be 23.

10, 8, 7, 14, 15, 13, 12, 24 25

10-8=2
7*2=14

15-13=2
12*2=24

25-23=2

Ans= 23
