    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    I can see where you're coming from, Kevin but incorrect.

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">1 ?, assuming there are only 10 digits!</span hide>
    PS, interesting new user pic! - what is the significance?

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    Nope. Once you see the pattern, you will be certain.

    Hint: <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">If you cannot find a mathematical pattern, there probably isn't one.</span hide>

    No more takers for this one? I must have Irritable Vowel Syndrome! <img src=/S/groan.gif border=0 alt=groan width=16 height=15>

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    How about <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> 12, 22 </span hide> ?

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    Loren Ann,

    Brilliant. <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15> I wonder if anyone else will supply the 9 remaining numbers to complete the sequence?

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    I take it I'm barking up the wrong tree as I would have completed the sequence with <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">12, 22, 26, 32, 36, 40, 52, 56, 62, 66, 70, 80, 90</span hide>?

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    I must be <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>... but this is just a bunch of random numbers to me. I <img src=/S/eyeout.gif border=0 alt=eyeout width=15 height=15> no sequence <img src=/S/question.gif border=0 alt=question width=15 height=15>
    Could just as well be <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">12, 22, 32, 42, 52, 62, 72, 81, 90.5....</span hide>...Just having fun with those last 2 <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    There is a sequence (more than one if my answer is incorrect) but as Rob said, it's not really a mathematical one.

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    If I said <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> forty-two </span hide> instead of <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">forty</span hide> , would that make sense? The rest fit my pattern. <img src=/S/clapping.gif border=0 alt=clapping width=19 height=23>

    Re: Yet Another Sequence

    <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>I plead lack of coffee as my defence for the typo which led me to include <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">40</span hide>. Should indeed be <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">42</span hide> and <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">46</span hide>. That's even more than 9 additional though?
