    0 because you go from 1 to 7, and then count to 6. so 7-1=6 and then counting up to that. 6-5=1 and counting up to that would be 0.

    5 because you count to 7 1 by 1 (and you dislike the numbers 1,2 and 3). after which you'd have to count to six 5 by 5, first stop being 5.

    7 because you're counting to 7 1 by one, making the next one 7.

    8 because in binary it looks something like this 0001 0111 0100 0101 0110 and you would never have used the first number, which is a waste of bits. it would make the number of uses of the numbers 1,4,3,2

    8 because in trinary it looks something like this 1, 21, 11, 12, 20 and the next on in the line would (obviously) be 22, being 8.

    In my son's mathmatics class they had a simular problem.

    What is the missing number? 47134(?)

    The correct number is 5. By taking a look at the last two digits.

    My answer 7

    the answer is still the same with this sequence,

    1-7-4-2-9-?
    1-7-4-3-0-?

    infact any combination of 1-7-4-2or3or5-6or9or0-leaving only 8 as the answer. Now ... why?

    I will reveal answer tomorrow morning my time. 200 geos to first correct answer or a big fat 0 to all .

    No more prompting from me, unless I see someone correct by now to 11 hours time from the time of this post. All clues given.

    happy hunting,

    hehehe this is a lot of fun, well worth the 200 geos, this means I am not revealing the answer. Sorry to disappoint, although the thinkers out there have another chance to work it out.

    Next clue, forget maths.
    I stated above that the answer is 8. Re-read it and tell me why?

    c'mon?


    Next clue - look at the numbers physically!

    It's now worth 150 geos because that's a big clue.

    wtf, when i posted my answers i missed all the posts before, very very very odd, you already said it was 8 apperently.

    well if the last number can be 6 or 9 or 0, im guessing this is something about those numbers being round in appearance (just thinking out loud here).


    ah i know! on my alarm clock numbers are represented by lines, 1 has 1 line, 7 has 2, 4 has 4, 3 has 5 and so do 2 and 5.
    6,9 and 0 have 6 lines. So the next number needs 7 lines! and the only number with 7 lines is 8!

    i only wonder why there is no number with 3 lines, although you could write 4 with 3 lines as well.

    Timmetie has it!

    on a digital clock the number 1 has two strokes
    7 has 3 strokes
    4 has 4 strokes
    2,5 and 3 have 5 strokes
    6,9 and 0 have 6 strokes
    and only 8 has all 7 strokes!

    Must've been having a deep and meaningful with my significant other ... mind tends to wander when she wants to discuss "feelings".

    Cowtreky - yeah, it's the simple ones that are the most fun to stump people with. I was sitting back imagining people doing little additions or multiplications trying to work out a common link .

    Who's got the next one?
