O obesechicken13 May 2010 23 2 May 16, 2010 #3 If not simultaneously: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 is pretty linear and 1,10,100,1000,10000 is pretty logarithmic So is 2,4,8,16,32,64 as long as you are in the log of base 2. If simultaneously, I think 1,1,1,1,1,1,1 is both a linear sequence (one that is increasing by 0), and a logarithmic one of base 1.
