1. ## Number Sequence Help

I have two problems that I need to figure out. This is for Paramedic school so I am no math genius. These are like an extra credit thing but I need to do them. My problem is I have so much to study for my normal paramedic stuff that I don't have a lot of time to spend on these. Please take a look and see if anyone can help me out. It is greatly appreciated!!!

Problem #1
This is a number sequence of numbers 0-15 there are three missing numbers 0, 7, and 9 I have to figure out in what position these numbers go in the sequence and why. Here is the sequence:

8 11 15 5 4 14 __ 1 __ 6 10 13 3 2 12 __

Problem #2
Please see the attached JPEG for this problem and forgive my artistic ability. The problem is to figure out the relationship between each number and it's corresponding shape.

2. On the second, look at the odds and the evens separately.

On the first, perhaps it is a question to determine if you will do something when faced with an ambiguous situation. There are only six ways to enter the given missing values. Look at all six and see what makes sense to you, if anything.

3. Hello, IndyMedicGuy!

There is typo in #1 . . .

#1. This is a sequence of numbers 0-15.
There are three missing numbers 0, 7, and 9.
I have to figure out in what position these numbers go in the sequence and why.

Here is the sequence: .$\displaystyle 8,\;11,\;15,\;5,\;4,\;14,\;\_\_,\;1,\; \_\_,\;6,\;10,\;13,\;3,\;{\color{blue}12,\;2},\;\_ \_$

Write out the English words for the numbers: . $\displaystyle \begin{array}{c}\text{eight}\\ \text{fifteen}\\ \text{five}\\ \text{four}\\ \text{fourteen} \\ \_\_ \\ \text{one} \\ \_\_ \\ \text{six}\\ \text{ten} \\ \vdots \end{array}$
Do you see a pattern?

2. Find the relationship between each number and its corresponding shape.
Ever play tic-tac-toe?
Code:
            |       |
1   |   2   |   3
|       |
- - - + - - - + - - -
|       |
4   |   5   |   6
|       |
- - - + - - - + - - -
|       |
7   |   8   |   9
|       |

No you are not!
What is stupid is the question in the first place.

6. I agree it is a stupid question especially for medic school but our instructor likes to screw with us. So I have to answer it.

for problem 1, the numbers are arranged so that their english names are in alphabetical order

8. Yep I am stupid!!! Thanks for the help! It must be too much pharmacology and cardiology stuff blocking my brain to see the obvious lol

no, you're not. you're just wrestling with math questions that essentially have nothing at all to do with math. it's a strange world.

well, that might be it too

take care
