If you wrote the numbers down correctly, then the solution is simply to add each number to itself, only you reverse the numbers on each side of the decimal. For example: 4.7 + 7.4 = 12.1

This would mean the sequence would go like this: 4.7 12.1 13.22 35.35 (which is 13.22 + 22.13).

You're welcome B)

It does seem that, in fact, you reverse the numbers for each side of the decimal. So, it would not be 35.35, rather 35.53.

4.7 12.1 13.22...
4.7+7.4=12.1
12.1+1.12=13.22
13.22+22.13=35.35

22.13 is what you add to 13.22 to get the next number

It does seem that, in fact, you reverse the numbers for each side of the decimal. So, it would not be 35.35, rather 35.53.

If you reverse the numbers either side of the decimal then you would end up with 12.1 + 21.1 = 33.2 NOT 13.22
