Re: What number belongs to this tableDid you figure out this problem.

Re: What number belongs to this tableThe problem with such problems is: How do we know there is an answer at all? How do we know if those numbers were just randomly generated? Now, if I didn’t tell you that I had obtained those numbers from a randomnumber generator, you’d probably waste the rest of your life wondering what the nonexistent solution might be. I think Mark Twain once played a trick on his fans the same way. He told them a riddle question that he had just made up in his head, for which he didn’t make up any answer. Everyone actually thought it was a real riddle and spent ages trying to solve it – and getting nowhere. Just goes to show how dumb some people can really get.

Re: What number belongs to this tableYou probably know the answer, but it is probably a strange question, the new math is screwed up... #6 20090608 10:10:36
Re: What number belongs to this tableHmmm; Last edited by bobbym (20090608 10:15:43) In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130904 12:02:05
Re: What number belongs to this tableThere is no single answer, but there are correct answers. The first number listed is a thousand+700+40+a single integer. The second the same with 700+30 and the third 700+20. The answer (next number) is any thousand+700+10+a single integer  lets say 4713. #8 20130904 12:38:25
