The answer is 16777216.
The square root is 4096 and cube root is 256.
i followed this approach as it decreases the chances , i checked for cubes of numbers which end up in 8 digits so the range of numbers from 216  464 on cubing gives the answer which is of 8 digits following the same approach in squaring 3163  9999 gives the numebers in 8 digits.
So i wrote a loop to check the cube roots aganist the square roots and i didnt use the condition the first two and last two are same ..
With using that i think the solution will be even simpler ..

Rajdeep are you sure this series is correct...
What I can work out is it, is following pattern
3*2^nn3, where n starts from 0. (Though its not working for first element)
However 74 is not fitting in this solution; 6 member of the series should be should be 88. If yes then answer is
183, 374, 757.
Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks CB, for you reply and pointing out the error. I recalculated the whole series after your reply and I found one error in 6th number. Actually the series is right, but I misspelled the number. The original number is 84. And one more thing that series can be started from 0 but it doesnt affect the series. Sorry for that error.
@Crazyboy, again thanks. And regarding about your answer, it isnt correct.
Here is the series,
#> 0,1,2,7,18,41,84,161,__,__,__,...

oops looks like Scorpion already posted the answer 😀
Anyways thanks scorpion the first one didnt struck yet.got the second one.
😀
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Congratulation to SS, for solving both the series!!
@ES, cheers!!!! Atleast you struck one.
Here is the common equation,
for 1st series : X(n+1)=X(n+1)+X(n)+n^2
and for 2nd series : X(n+1)=X(n+1)+X(n)+n
take X(0)=0, X(1)=1.
I want to post some more series by replacing n by 2n,3n,or n^3, but I just thought that its enough. Thanks SS for your interest, I will post some more difficult series.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Here is one another series for you all CEans, but here is one condition. You have to specify the common equation.
Let us start with modrate difficulty level, I will increase the difficulty latter, cause finding the common eqtation is little tough.
1> 1,2,2,4,5,9,13,22,__,__,__,...
2> 0,1,1,3,4,8,12,21__,__,__,...
3> 1,0,2,2,5,7,13,21,__,__,__,...
4> 2,1,4,3,6,8,14,21,__,__,__,...
Try this but dont forgot to reply with common equation.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Below is my solution:
1> 1,2,2,4,5,9,13,22,__,__,__,...
Considering x(0) = 1, x(1) = 2, the equation should be:
x(n+1) = x(n) + x(n1)  (n % 2)
Hence,
x(8)
= x(7 + 1)
= x(7) + x(71)  (7 % 2)
= x(7) + x(6)  (7 % 2)
= 22 + 13  1
= 34
2> 0,1,1,3,4,8,12,21__,__,__,...
Considering x(0) = 0, x(1) = 1, the equation should be:
x(n+1) = x(n) + x(n1) + [(n+1) % 2)]
Hence,
x(8)
= x(7 + 1)
= x(7) + x(71) + [(7+1) % 2]
= x(7) + x(6) + [8 % 2]
= 21 + 12 + 0
= 33
3> 1,0,2,2,5,7,13,21,__,__,__,...
Considering x(0) = 1, x(1) = 0, the equation should be:
x(n+1) = x(n) + x(n1) + (n % 2)
Hence,
x(8)
= x(7 + 1)
= x(7) + x(71) + (7 % 2)
= x(7) + x(6) + (7 % 2)
= 21 + 13 + 1
= 35
4> 2,1,4,3,6,8,14,21,__,__,__,...
I feel the series should be
2,1,3,3,6,8,14,21,__,__,__,...
If that is the case then considering x(0) = 2, x(1) = 1, the equation should be:
x(n+1) = x(n) + x(n1)  [(n+1) % 2]
Hence,
x(8)
= x(7 + 1)
= x(7) + x(71)  [(7+1) % 2]
= x(7) + x(6) + (8 % 2)
= 21 + 14 + 0
= 35
If the series is not as i specified, then i need to give it another try.
Pradeep
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

You are absolutely right!!!!
You get the another solution for series. Here is my solution:
take X(0)=1, X(1)=1,
1> X(n+1)=X(n)+X(n1)+Sin(n*pi/2)
2> X(n+1)=X(n)+X(n1)Cos(n*pi/2)
3> X(n+1)=X(n)+X(n1)Sin(n*pi/2)
4> X(n+1)=X(n)+X(n1)+Cos(n*pi/2).
Be prepared for the hard challenges.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Try your mind on this:
#>> 5,17,37,65,101,__,__,__,....
It will be better if you submit the solution with common equation cause it is easy to explain others.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Below is my solution:
5,17,37,65,101,__,__,__,....
Considering x(0) = 5, the equation should be:
x(n+1) = x(n) + 12 + 8*n
Hence,
x(5)
= x(4 + 1)
= x(4) + 12 + 8*4
= 101 + 12 + 32
= 145

Great Pradeep!!!! You are blazzing fast for solving the series. Now I have to increase the difficulty to intermediatle level.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Pradeep you are lightining fast excellent .
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

Here is the another series, you dont need to give common equation. So just give the answer,
#>>> 0,1,3,2,6,7,5,__,__,__,__,.....
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

That's a tough one. I guess it should be 4 but not sure.
Reason:
The series is: 0,1,3,2,6,7,5,__,__,__
If we take difference of each consecutive number the series of differences is
1,2,1,4,1,2
So i feel the pattern it follows is
1,2,1,4,1,2,1,4...
And so the next value in the given series should be (51) = 4.
If you specify few next element of the series then may be i can comment more on that.

Dude if you consider it 57 is 2 not 2 .

Thanks for bringing that up. I did a typo.
Actually i mean that the pattern should be
1,2,1,4,1,2,1,4...
or something similar.
For the current series i will still go with 4 as guess for next number. But to determine the correct pattern i will need more data as input.

If I assume that this given series does not have any wrong numbers then after putting my 2 stupid explanations into it, series would be somewhat like following:
0,1,3,2,6,7,5,
12,13,14,15,16,11...
or
0,1,3,2,6,7,5,
12,13,14,9,...

Series is perfectly correct, there is no errors in the series. I am giving some more elements, hope this will help you:

But dont forgot to solve the series.
P.S: 3 series are left to solve.
I dont want to give more mathematical puzzles until I get the solution of atleast two series.
Try to get rid of it, first one is tough & demands different logic but remaining can be solved with few logics.

#>>> 0,1,3,2,6,7,5,4,12,13,__,__,__,__,....
Now you will have to specify the next four elements of the series.
I feel the series follow pattern where the difference from previous number can be represented as:
1,2,1,4,1,2,1,8,1 ,2,1,4,1,2,1,16...,
The series of differences follow the pattern:
 The difference will always be (+/)2^n, (n >= 0)
 n is the highest number for which the position of difference is completely divisible by 2^n, e.g., if we consider position 8, 8 is completely by 2^3 = 8. So we put 8 there. Similarly if we consider position 12, 12 is completely divisible by 2^2 = 4 so we put 4 there.
 The +/ is determined from the previous sign of same difference value and the first appearance of any difference value is always positive, e.g., at position 12 we have 4 because the previous appearance of 4 at position 4 was positive. At position 16 we have 16 (positive) because it appears for first time.
So the next four number in the series should be 15,14,10,11.
Pradeep
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

@Pradeep, your answer is right but I cant get through the logic you used in series. I have different logic for series. I have little doubt about the integrity of the logic you used. Can you please specify more elements of the series (preferebly 1012) to check the integrity of the series? I am looking forward for this.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

As per my logic the series of differences will be:
1,2,1,4,1,2,1,8,1,2,1,4,1,2,1,16,1,2,1,4,1,2,1,8...
And hence the series of actual numbers will be:
0,1,3,2,6,7,5,4,12,13,15,14,10,11, 9,8,24,25,27,26,30,31,29,28,20...

Here is another mathematics teaser :
Use only 1, 3, 4, & 6 to derive the number 24. You have to follow some rules,
>> use only standard arithmetic expression
>> use of trignometric and logrethmic functions is not allowed here
>> you can use infinite numbers of bracket

Is the use of square root allowed??
If so, then here's the answer..

Sorry SS, your answer is right, but we have to strictly use the simple arithmetic operations. Anyway keep on scratching your head, you will definatley get the answer.

What about my answer RajDeep ? 😔
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

@CEMember, only simple arithmetic operat¨¬on is allowed, you can only use addition(+), subtraction(), multiplication(*), & division(/), and use lots of brackets() as many as you need.

This time you have to specify the common equation of series too, cause its damn easy to find the next number but for finding common equation, you have to mess with your mind.
All the best.
Are you sure? This action cannot be undone.

1) The first series is n[SUP]n[/SUP].
so, the next terms are 3125, 46656, etc..
2) The second series is,
2+(n1)*5/2 if n is odd,and
(n1)*4 if n is even.
So, the next terms are 12,48,17,68, etc..
3) I can't find the common equation for this. I managed to find the next terms in the series.. They came to be
208, 422..

I feel the second series should go as:
2, 8, 27, 85, 260, 786, 2365 ...
2 * 3 + 2 = 8
8 * 3 + 3 = 27
27 * 3 + 4 = 85
85 * 3 + 5 = 260
260 * 3 + 6 = 786
