I dont think thats the pattern cuz in order for there to be a pattern then you would have to be able to figure out more of the sequence. and from what i know "...." at the end of a sequence means theres more and you can figure it out."? Leaving the other numbers alone to use them when it gives the answer doesnt show any pattern. I agree with Jordanmax above, i dont think there is a pattern in it. If there is then theres prolly a really complicated formula for it that im too thick headed to see.

I agree with you.But I have also filled in 2 more numbers(1/4,1/4)to continue the sequence.And it keeps the pattern running

I agree there is no pattern.

Tanstaafl, it's never good if you are only using 1 example based on the given 4 numbers to conclude a series pattern. Also, 1/2 divided by 1 doesn't equal 1.

itchi-san, while I agree that I made a mistake in my division and spoiled the pattern, I do not agree with you that there is no pattern. Just because you cannot discern the pattern, doesn't mean that it isn't there. While on the subject, can you prove your negative? Of course not.
