i have a riddle for you
not so much of a riddle…more of trying to find a pattern but anyways…
can you guess the next 2 lines to this pattern?
I’ve figured out part of it.
Now I just need to see how to arrange the numbers…
@washandburn, i’ve never actually looked at it that way before. i’m not sure how you can find the arrangement from the sums though
This was totally based off of some weird thing I created in my head.
Oh lol, it’s not mathematical is why I screwed me. I was definitely wrong. I hate word problems masquerading as math problems…
It’s the Fibonacci Sequence!
1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 35 etc etc.
I don’t know what sequence should come next though..
Instead enjoy a song
@pete, It isn’t the fibonacci sequence though.
@xyver, has the correct answer, and the riddle is just noticing the fact that this isn’t something requires mathematical background to solve. It’s a word puzzle (it is interesting that it starts off as the fibonacci sequence though)
Well don’t I feel silly now. I was convinced it was the fibonacci sequence.
Word play got me!
@pete, friend, the answer is based on the following:
You start with 1 (one), and then the rest is just asking yourself how much you have
You have one, one
You have two, ones
You have one two and one one
You have one one, one two, and two ones
You have 3 ones, 2 twos and one one
You have one three one one two twos and two ones
@pete, I’d heard it before but, too, was consumed with trying to find a pattern. I did find one, and that resulted in post numbers which still followed the fibonacci sequence.
