Question

Guest

OK, so I have tried answering a few riddles, with mixed success, and I thought I would add one of my own. Simple really, what comes next?

1, 4, 6, 15 ....

I'll add a new number each day if it's not guessed.

27?

35, 56, 72

1, x, x, 4, x, 6, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, x, 15, . . .

Sequence of numbers (x1 .. xn) between visible numbers are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, ...

3rd visible = 6 = 2 * 3 (x1 * x2)

4th visible = 15 = 3 * 5 (x2 * x3)

5th visible = 35 = 5 * 7 (x3 * x4)

6th visible = 56 = 7 * 8 (x4 * x5)

It works so far, but is it right?

Very clever, but also wrong. So I think I may offer some advice :)

There are only 10 numbers in this whole sequence.

How about the number 32?

Also wrong. I think I might give another number for every five incorrect guesses rather than daily ;) So two more wrong guess and another number will be given.

No sorry. That is five wrong, so here is the continuation of the sequence:

1, 4, 6, 15, 17 ....

I figured this one out last night actually...

I actually got it after I had a drink or two at a bar

You can also start a similar sequence with 18 13 10 2...

Good sequence riddle. I liked it. I'm amazed I actually figured it out...
