Hi PatternMan;

A question. Is the phrase "Which number comes next in the sequence?" part of the original problem? Did you add it?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

91 does seem more appropriate.
