Question

What are the next 6 numbers in the following sequence?: 3, 3, 4, 3, 3, 6, 7, 9, 9, 11, 6, 9, 5, 8, 8, 8, 10, 5, 8

Don't know how easy or difficult this is but don't give yourself a headache.

Well, if anyone wants a hint:

It has something to do with prime numbers.

Maybe next two are 7 and 9?

Nice to know someone is trying. In the future, spoilers would be nice.

7 is correct but 9 is not.

try doing something to the individual numbers (adding, subtracting,. . . ). This does not involve adding/subtracting/etc. the given numbers to/from each other.

7, 10

Exactly! I'm glad you explained it because mine probably would have been longer and not quite so clear.

Okay, I was reading this, and I'm still not getting it???? What do X and P-1 have to do with it?

The first 4 prime numbers (P) are 2, 3, 5, and 7.

Subtract 1 from each: 1, 2, 4, 6

Write them out

One= 3 letters

Two= 3 letters

Four= 4 letters

Six= 3 letters

X= the number of letters

Does this make sense?

Asinghal, regretfully, I cannot read your language. I tried a translator and it seems to be Indonesian but I can't understand it. Can you type in English?
