If we consider the series;

582+23=605 ----> 1st term

605-17=588 ----> 2nd term

588+23=611 ----> 3rd term

611-17=594 ----> (which is not 4th term) so instead of 634, it should be 594.

582+23=605 ----> 1st term

605-17=588 ----> 2nd term

588+23=611 ----> 3rd term

611-17=594 ----> (which is not 4th term) so instead of 634, it should be 594.

If we add 6 to every alternate number the alternate number comes same except 600.

Eg- 582 (1st number) +6 = 588 (3rd number).

605 (2nd number) +6=611 (4th number).

Eg- 582 (1st number) +6 = 588 (3rd number).

605 (2nd number) +6=611 (4th number).

Seperates the patterns like this

582, 588, ?, 600.

605, 611, 617.

In each pattern add +6 and then;

588 + 6 = 594.

594 + 6 = 600.

582, 588, ?, 600.

605, 611, 617.

In each pattern add +6 and then;

588 + 6 = 594.

594 + 6 = 600.

We can assume two sequence in the problem.

One starting from 582 and other starting with 605 and adding 6 to each term of the sequence.

582+6 = 588

588+6 = 594 instead of this there is 634

and again 594+6=600

Similarly,

605+6=611

611+6=617.

One starting from 582 and other starting with 605 and adding 6 to each term of the sequence.

582+6 = 588

588+6 = 594 instead of this there is 634

and again 594+6=600

Similarly,

605+6=611

611+6=617.

I think 600 is the correct answer because 617+23 = 640 should come if they do it alternatively.

582-605=23,

605-588=17

588-611=23

634-617=17

611-634=23

So balance 17 +17 =34

Add balance no is 600 +34 =634 ans.

605-588=17

588-611=23

634-617=17

611-634=23

So balance 17 +17 =34

Add balance no is 600 +34 =634 ans.

My answer is 617.

Because all number are composite number except 617 (which is prime number).
