neither could I, this was definitely not one to "guess" at ... I got a cubic regression to fit the data using my calculator.

$\displaystyle y = -24.5x^3 + 272.5x^2 - 1145x + 1898$

$\displaystyle y(1) = 1001$

$\displaystyle y(2) = 502$

$\displaystyle y(3) = 254$

$\displaystyle y(4) = 110$

$\displaystyle y(5) = -77$

$\displaystyle y(6) = -454$

whoever came up with this should be slapped. - Nov 25th 2008, 04:02 PMLinnus

Apparently...the pattern was lacking some numbers...but I still can't figure out the new pattern

1001, 502, 254, 205, 133, 110,__, __
