Sorry Ketchup, no. The answer to the question is not a number. CLUE  the question is as much languagebased as mathematical.Ketchup wrote:bindeweede wrote:What do the following numerals represent?

Re: Maths brainteaser.
Not really, though you might be thinking along the right lines. The next number in the series would be 3

Re: Maths brainteaser.
In which case that would make 21 numbers. I'm sure I have it now .... If the next number in the series would also be 3 and the next and the next and the next  right on up to 101 (?)  then yes, I've got it.bindeweede wrote:The next number in the series would be 3
ETA: Actually .... no, there would be a few 2's at regular intervals before reaching the 101 ..... (just realised). Oh, and some regular 4's as well! But no higher than 4. Am I on the right track, Bindybobs?
{Afterthought} ... Yes, there is one 5, :ro
