# Skip counting by 7s

For learning skip counting by 7s, be sure that your child should know how to count the next number from the previous number. For that reinforce earlier counting skills by chanting them out loud with your student.Counting by 7s means adding seven to previous number or jump by 7. Each number is 7 more than the previous number.

## Skip counting by 7s

**Example :**Skip counting by 7's

7 : 7 + 7 = 14 ; 14 + 7 = 21 ; 21 + 7 =28 ; 28 + 7 = 35 ; 35 + 7 = 42 and so on.

So if the 1st number is 7 then after counting by 7's we will get 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42,...

To find the next number by counting by 7's , add 7 to the given number.

**Example 1 :**Find the next number of 10 after counting it by 7's.

**Solution :**Add 7 to 10.

10 + 7 = 17.

So next number will be 17.

**Example 2 :**Find the next number of 78 after counting it by 7's.

**Solution :**Add 7 to 78.

78 + 7 = 85.

So next number will be 85.

**Example 3 :**Find the 5 missing numbers using skip counting by 7's after 30.

**Solution :**As we have to find the missing number by 7's so add 7 to each number from 30.

1st missing number = 30 + 7 = 37

2nd missing number = 37 + 7 = 44

3rd missing number = 44 + 7 = 51

4th missing number = 51 + 7 = 58

5th missing number = 58 + 7 = 65

So the numbers are 37, 44,51,58, 65.
