2
2*4=8
2*7 or (4+3)=14
2*10 or (4+3+3)=20
2*16 or (4+3+3+3)=32
2*19 or (4+3+3+3+3) =38
The difference between the digits which are to be multiplied is 3

2 X 4 = 8.
2 X 7 = 14.
2 X 10 = 20.
2 X 13 = 26.
2 X 16 = 32.
2 X 19 = 38.
2 X 22 = 44.
2 X 25 = 50.

Every next number is added by 6.

Debi said: (Sep 24, 2016)  
The difference between two number is 6.

8 - 2 = 6,
14 - 8 = 6,
20 - 14 = 6,
26 - 20 = 6,
32 - 27 = 6,
38 - 32 = 6,
44 - 38 = 6,
So, 50 - 44 = 6.

Utkarsh said: (May 25, 2017)  
As every no is increasing with 6 then ans is;

38 + 6 = 44,
44 + 6 = 50 Hence B is the answer.

Shabbaz said: (Aug 10, 2017)  
Also,

I can be done like take the last number= 38.
Add with previous=32,
Subtract with the third last=26,
=38+32-26= 44,

Same way, 44+38-32= 50.

2+6 = 8,
8+6 = 14,
14+6 = 20,
20+6 = 26,
26+6 = 32,
32+6 = 38,
38+6 = 44.

Mathka Naveen said: (Apr 5, 2020)  
First pair- 2+18=20.
20+18=38.
Second pair- 8+18=26.
26+18=44.
Third pair- 14+18=32.
32+18=50.

The final pair is 38 44 50.

Take alternate numbers such as ( 2,14,26,38) and (8,20,32).

Take first pair :
2+12=14
14+12=26
26+12=38
Now : 38+12=50.

Take Second pair:
8+12=20
20+12=32
Now : 32+12=44.


Therefore we get the two numbers by taking alternate numbers and adding 12 to each number
HENCE THE NUMBERS ARE 44, 50.
