    55378008?


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

    jah128 has the correct solution. I'm trying to work out his now!

    What number follows in this sequence and why?

    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!

    is it the letter g?

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

    1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 3, 3, 1, 1, 4, 6, 4, 1, 1, 5, ... ?

    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!)

    :-D

    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?
