Post the next three numbers in the following pattern:

2111121211

1211211112111221

11122112112111122111121211

Is this right?

\Mapar007

Not the way I learned it. Shall I post the next one in the sequence?

The next 3 numbers are:

```
312211
13112221
1113213211
```

All right, I hope it's not too easy

```
1
2
14
137
?
13730
149543
?
?
```

Fill in the missing numbers.

The numbers in order are:

1372, 1507677, 15089024

I'm sorry but I made a mistake: The 7th number is **1249543** and not 149543.

so the correct pattern is then:

```
1
2
14
137
?
13730
1249543
?
?
```

To patriot: 1 of your 3 numbers is correct (I'm not going to say which one). The 2 others aren't and that's probably because of my mistake.

Then, it has to be these numbers:

1372, 124830864, 12482962998

Am I correct?

That is correct.

You may post a new pattern.

Here's a tough one:

2 6 30 260 3130 ? ? ?

Solve for the three missing numbers.

I thought I got it, but it turned out that after three numbers my theory went wrong…

Should I give you guys a clue?

Okay, I'll try and do my best without giving away the answer.

The pattern does not depend on the last number. For example, a pattern like (1,4,7,10) skips by threes and succeeds the last number before it.

My pattern is formed by an equation such as y = 2x+1. This is how it would look on a table:

x | y |
---|---|

1 | 2 |

2 | 6 |

3 | 30 |

4 | 260 |

5 | 3130 |

6 | ? |

7 | ? |

8 | ? |

x = position of the number

y = value of the number

I hope you get a better understanding of the pattern.

No guesses? It has been five days now.

Is the equation y=x^{2}+x?

Never mind I am dumb.

EDIT - Removed strike-through.

Hey, don't cross it out, you're almost there!

The problem with the equation is the 2…

You mean I have the exponent wrong?

I've got it 13322 37766 85640 168370 299630.

Sorry, but that was not what I was looking for.

But how did you get your solutions?

I placed {1,2,3,4,5} into L1 placed {2,6,30,260,3130} into L2 and ran a Quartreg on it.

Sorry for randomly budging in, but I can't resist math problems…

Here is the answer:

*x*^{x}+*x*

The next numbers are 46662, 823550, and 16777224.

I got the answer after trying *x*^{2}+x, then *x*^{3}+*x* and noticed two numbers matched each time, then realized the exponent was variable.

Good job! Finally someone got it. :-)

You can post the next pattern.

Here is an easy one.

2,5,*x*,14,20,27,*y*

Find *x* and *y*

Also, try to tell me what this pattern represents…
