Hi icebreaker89,

here's a clue.
If you add the first two numbers, you get the third one.
If you add the second and third numbers, you get the 4th one.
The next number in the sequence is the two previous ones added together.

3. oh my god i cant believe its thats simple!

many thanks archie

4. You're welcome icebreaker89,

it's simple when you see it,

when you are faced with a sequence though,
you must examine it and attempt to find a pattern

It may not be obvious until you see it
(it's fine for someone who has the hindsight of having seen it before!).
