# Thread: the next number in the line.

1. ## the next number in the line.

well, this is the order:

0,8414709850
0.1411200080
-0,9589242750
0,6569865990
-0,9999902070
0,4201670370
-0,9613974920
0,149877210

i need to know whats the next number in this line is. this is all i got, no forumula's, ect. can some1 help me?(and move it if its not in the right place, im kinda new here and thought it would fit here)

2. There is NO "necessary" 'next number' in any sequence. Sometimes you can try to "guess" a simple pattern or formula, such as "add the same thing each step" (arithmetic sequence) or "multiply by the same thing each step". I note that the third number here is the negative of the sum of the first two but I don't see any clear way to get the fourth number.

3. I don't think It's possible. Are you 100% sure you can make the next number?
I've just created an A4 piece of paper full with random numbers that don't match.
Nothing Matches.
