## Question

What are the next 3 numbers in the sequence?

8, 6, 96, 047, 10803, 424, 878, 3, 9171, 98838, 7240, ?, ?, ?

The sequence will go on indefinitely, and I tried to design it to be difficult. Notice "047" kept the leading 0....it is significant/needed.

Good Luck

The next two numbers after the question marks are 14844 and 82

How many unique numbers will this sequence go through?

Looks like a hint is needed.

The sequence is a combination of 2 other sequences and a lame encryption

No takers? Someone is bound to get it....or at least see some part of the pattern.

Ok...I thought I would give away a huge hint this time.....

the sequence is closely related to the following sequence:

3, 14, 159, 2653, 58979, 323846, 2643383, ...

Look at the sequence in hint3, and remove commas and spacing.....look familiar?

I could go for some of that pie right now.

right....so what is the original sequence?

Looks like hints are not helping much...

If you remove spacing and commas, the sequence is the digits of PI where each digit is encrypted using rot5 ((x+5) mod 10).

To get the spacing, it is the fibbonacci series, but whenever the sum is greater than 5, 5 is subtracted.

therefore, the numbers are 5733, 964, and 26

each number in the sequence will be from 1 to 5 digits. If you count 00047 to be different from 47 (I said the 0's were significant/needed in the question), then there are 111110 unique numbers in the sequence (100000 5 digit numbers, 10000 4 digit numbers, etc).

I was thinking that the Fibbonacci series was involved with this after you basically told us that Pi was. But then I still couldn't see the answer. This was a really good one, but a bit too tough (for me at least)

Yes , EventHorizon. This was a really tough one but nevertheless a great one. I tried solving it but could not arrive at a solution.
