Why are these numbers arranged in this fashion? This is a finite sequence, and these are all the numbers in the sequence. No fair googling!
8, 5, 4, 9, 1, 7, 6, 10, 3, 2.
Instead of just googling you might want to ask The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences™ (OEIS™)
Yes, I know, and how unfair it is! By the way, you surely know the story of John von Neumann actually solving a trick question the hard way (by summing an infinite series) but doing it so quickly that people thought he had figured how to do it the easy way.
Sad to say, I am no John von Neumann.
I edited this message because I missunderstood the chat and posted a nonsense, hehe.
There's a similar sequence that I think it only works in portuguese (my mother language), which you must tell what are the next term: 2, 10, 12, 16, 17, 18, 19, ?
