What is the next term?

Casting out nines?

Nope.

Altho there does seem to be a pattern.

I'd try something different.

131 228 331 430 531 630 731 830 931

looks good to me but ...

228 doesn't fit then. It should be 230, right?

Phew! Bononova , I was really anxious to know your answer. :)

Glad to know I got it.It was a very well concealed one indeed.

And guys please do try out SEQUENCE WITH A DIFFERENCE . I have posted a hint.

I should have posted a hint earlier. Your Personal statement holds true Bononova.

831 930

not

830 931 :)

Yup.

Bonus points awarded for correcting the oops before any of us other geniuses did. :huh:

Now I'm curious. How did you get the answer if you didn't know the pattern?

You can alternate adding 99 and 101. It does not work for the 228, but I believe it does work for the rest.

OK, but the 2 28 is right at the start of the sequence so I would think that it couldn't be overlooked too easily.

Hey! Itachi-san , there is a thing called GUT INSTINCT. And the sequence was too much of a co-incidence for my answer not to be right. 331 430 531 630 731 830 931

It was my first guess. Then after realising the implications of the pattern , I modified my answer. ;)

hey ! You really are suspicious. :lol:
