1: 7,8,9,10,11,12...

2: 16, 27, 38, 49, ?60?

after 9 is 38

first number (7), disregard.

second number (16) is half of third # (8);

fourth # (27) is 1/3 of fifth # (9)

sixth # (next in the series) would be 1/4 the seventh # (10). So the sixth number is 40.

You can also do this as: (third #)*(2) = (second #); (fifth #)*(3) = (fourth #); (seventh #)*(4) = (sixth) - 8*2=16; 9*3=27, 10*4=40
