Try solving this number sequence:

One I made myself with my fav ingredients. :D

Find the missing number:

2 , 5 , 11 , _ , 137 ,.....

play with the bases

:P

At first I thought it was 17, because it was every other prime... Then I saw 137 <_<

Let it ride if you can stand the suspense!

Someone will find an answer.

If you post it - it's half dead!

(just my opinion)

I am Not giving up. :mad:

I will not use a spoiler this time , maybe a spoiler is difficult to open .

Decimal : 2

Binary:

2 Bits : 10

4 bits : 0010

8 bits : 00000010

OK now use this in the sequence(For numbers having more than 4 bits naturally , i.e. , after 15 (or) 1111).

Hey ! I have created a record of sorts in the den.

I have posted more than half of the replies in my topic . Sounds great , isn't it? ;)
