    1)0, 6, 21, 81, 42, 03,...

    1) Write the sequence backwards and group into pairs (except the last two) you end up with
    30,24,18,12,6,0. So the number which completes the original sequence is 36
    2) Increasing sequence of numbers beginning with vowels
    3) Products of digits.
    4) Double. If the result is less than 1000, take away 100, if it is greater than 1000, take away 1100.
    5) Decimal expansion of root 2
