Thread: I need sequence help, and FAST!

1. I need sequence help, and FAST!

What is the next number in this sequence?
52, 28, 33, 63, 73, 23, 56,... please help me? ive been tryign for 3 hours now! thanks!

2. This really isn't an easy sequence. There's no common difference, no common ratio, and no pattern that I can see. I've been trying for about 40 minutes now with no results. I've searched it online to maybe find the pattern, but I have not had any luck. I hope you find it, and if you do, post it here. O.o

I posted on yahoo answers and someone came up with 46, but went offline before i could ask how

4. The only thing I can think of is this

52 - 24 = 28

28 + 5 = 33

33 + 30 = 63

63 + 10 = 73

73 - 50 = 23

23 + 33 = 56

All I can think of is to just start over:

56 - 24 = 32

32 + 5 = 37

37 + 30 = 67

67 + 10 = 77

77 - 50 = 27

27 + 33 = 60

As you can see, every time you perform that specific set of operations you increase that entire pattern of numbers by four. That is the only observable pattern I can see... I worked for hours , :P. I hope it helps.

Thus, the next number in the sequence is 32, which is 4 more than 28. You're basically adding four to all of the 6 beginning numbers (because 52 + 4 = 56, giving you the seventh term) numbers to come up with the next set of numbers in the sequence.

The sequence gives you the first number for the next 5 numbers in the sequence, the 6th number produced in the new sequence is the number used to generate the next 5 terms and gives you a 6th term to do it over again.

put it on a cubical figure at degrees of latitude of 180 degrees looking at it with the exact numbers postive to its negative outcome gives you 46.
see...52...28 + the 46 of the 63 and when you subtract and or add it you get 73 of the 4th to final 6 numbers which comes out to 46!

6. errr what? dont get that at all

7. sorry to reopen the thread but i cant stand not understanding something. does anyone understand the answer?

8. What class is this for? What other problems have you been working on? What lvl of math can we use? What is the chapter about?
