Hope this helps you!!!

Step-by-step explanation:

Answers out of endless. The question is subjective at best. Almost any answer can be justified. Perhaps, providing g the first (6) sets of numbers and asking for the next 6 would yield the targeted response that you are looking for, however, here are 3 answers for you.

All simplistic in nature.

6, 36, 72, 108, 144, 180

Each sequence adds 6 to the previously stacked number and multiplies it times 6

Base is 6 = 6

6

Plus 6 and multiply

Plus 6, (6) x (6)

6 x 6 = 36

6, 36,

Plus 6, (6+6 = 12) x (6)

6 x 12= 72

6, 36, 72,

Plus 6, (6+12=18) x (6)

6x 18 = 108

6, 36, 72, 108,

Plus 6, (6+18=24)x(6)

6 x 24 = 144

6, 36, 72, 108, 144,

Plus 6, (6+24= 30) x (6)

6 x 30 = 180

6, 36, 72, 108, 144, 180,

6, 36, 72, 108, 144, 180, ..

180.

Option 2 of endless:

6, 36, 72…

The first number is provided. Square it for the 2nd number and multiply it times 1. Then sequentially add 1 to the multiplier.

6 , starter number

(6×6)x1=36

6, 36,

(6×6)×2=72

6, 36, 72,

(6×6)x3=108

6, 36, 72, 108,

(6×6)x4=144

6, 36, 72, 108, 144

(6×6)x5=180

6, 36, 72, 108, 144, 180, etc

Option3, of endless squared:

Doubling works too….

6, 36, 72, 144, 288, 576, etc

Another? …

Adding a donkey to the 2nd number may confuse some, unless a giraffe is subtracted from the 4th number as follows…
