55378008?

No. It is a single number that follows the sequence (i.e. 1 to 9).

3, 6, 6, 8, 8, 7, 7, 9, 8

3+3=6, 6+0=6, 6+2=8, 8+0=8, 8-1=7, 7-0=7, 7+2=9, 9-1+8, 8

+3+0+2+0-1-0+2-1...first thought its some kinda logical sequence, but not really :)

I've read couple spy novels lately...
one 3
two 3
three 4
four 4
five 4
six 3
seven 5
eight 5
nine 4
ten 3
eleven 6
twelve 6
thirteen 8
fourteen 8
fifteen 7
sixteen 7
seventeen 9
eighteen 8
nineteen 8
twenty 6
...and so on

nice one!

It's definitely 55378008. I have a degree, masters, and PhD in maths, and am an expert in turning a calculator upside down.

was wondering when someone would get it! you can tell donnydude is moving house atm- he'd have been on post 3 with that! (btw have no maths qualifications really- but as a primary school teacher i'm showing many youngsters this and 71011345, keepin the dream alive!)

69?
maybe?

Jasonrat - is there meant to be a comma between the 6 & 9?

Surely the obvious would be 11 (not divisible by 3), or is it something to do with how they appear on a calculator? All except "3" can still be read as a number (same or different) if the calculator is turned upside down?

Still to be solved:
1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11,18... next two numbers?
