find the missing number

8,108,24,36,72,?,216

Dear Student!

The given numbers are 8, 108, 24, 36, 72, ?, 216.

Consider the circled numbers 8, 24, 72 and 216.

24 = 8 × 3

72 = 24 × 3

216 = 72 × 3

Here, the numbers are obtained by multiplying the previous number by 3.

Now consider the un circled numbers 108, 36, ?

Here, **the numbers are obtained by dividing the previous number by 3.**

Thus, the missing number is 12.

Cheers!
