We have the series 2, 8, 14, 20, x, 32.

If we have a look at the terms we see that 8 - 2 = 14 - 8 = 20 - 14 = 6.

Therefore the series is an arithmetic progression with the common difference 6.

So x - 20 = 6

=> x = 26

Again, as verification we see that 32 - 26 = 6.

**The missing term x is equal to 26.**
