    WHAT d'heck is that?
    Looks like finding the 4th week (Monday to Sunday) of something...

    Is this from a classroom assignment?
    Or from some online "treasure chase"?

    Any background stuff?

    Hiya,

    it is a puzzle given to us by our maths staff.
    I dont think no one in our class has found this out!

    i tried to sequence it and calculate the difference margin , but it doesnt match the next list.

    Go to this website. In my opinion, this type of question is a total waste of students' time.
    As any one can see from the website there can be any number of answers.
