please show all work.

BHT August 27 2009 1:26 AM EDT

I used increasing multiplicative difference between numbers.

AdminNightStrike August 27 2009 1:28 AM EDT

47

primes

DoS August 27 2009 1:37 AM EDT

If it is primes, then where is 13 or 17?

TheCakeIsTheTruth August 27 2009 1:39 AM EDT

13, 17 , 47

:P

Admiralkiller August 27 2009 1:40 AM EDT

I am going to bed if i was right (which i doubt)...it was a guess and felt right.

AdminNightStrike August 27 2009 1:45 AM EDT

Other option is 41:

two patterns, digit separates:

1 - 2 - 3 3 - 4 4 4
start with 1, next sequence is n+1 repeated n times.

'2' is n+1 repeated n times when n is 1
'3 3' is n+1 repeated n times when n is 2
etc

So the first digit is 4


The second digit follows the pattern:
1 x 1 x 1 x
So the next number is a 1

This leaves 41

mexitl August 27 2009 1:51 AM EDT

It's not a "next number" puzzle.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 1:51 AM EDT

61

AdminShade August 27 2009 1:52 AM EDT

I used the guessing method.

11
31
41

all 3 are numbers which end at 1.
all 3 numbers have another number in between while 43 is at the end.

so I guessed 51.

mexitl August 27 2009 1:55 AM EDT

Novice, that's so awesome that I wish it were the answer!

But it's not.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 1:57 AM EDT

rats, I thought Google had once again saved me from death by ignorance

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] August 27 2009 2:00 AM EDT

I still cant think of anything but... If you do all the right (math stuff) in all the right places it comes to bacony chili cheese potato wedges ;P

(this shows about where the math teachers lost my attention)

AdminLamuness August 27 2009 2:02 AM EDT

61 is the next number in the sequence.

Numbers are odd, composite numbers, and are also prime. They fall into the category of being Carmichael Numbers.

mexitl August 27 2009 2:09 AM EDT

Novice is on the trail.

Shalot [Rawr] August 27 2009 5:07 AM EDT

the differences between the numbers are:
18
4
6
4
2

18+4+6+4+2=34

-11+29-31-37+41+43=34

Shalot [Rawr] August 27 2009 5:14 AM EDT

wow did I fail.
the differences are actually
18
2
6
4
2

when you add those you get 32, which is the average of the 6 numbers.

Your portion of the National Deficit? >.>

Zenai August 27 2009 6:36 AM EDT

This has something to do with the Aztec/Mayan Calendar. I've seen this pattern before:

My High School History teacher had the class do their Birthdays :)

Zenai August 27 2009 6:43 AM EDT

By the way if you want to go more in depth there is a further Link at the bottom of that page that tells of important Mayan/Aztec Calendar days as well :)

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 7:30 AM EDT

Why, 42, of course.

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] August 27 2009 7:50 AM EDT

i go for 55

Hmmm. 49!

mexitl August 27 2009 1:17 PM EDT

Again, the answer is not a "pick the next number in the series" thing.

The set of numbers is what matters. What's the significance of the number set?

This is specific to CB, by the way.

AdminShade August 27 2009 1:24 PM EDT

the average times in the past days that cache flush was finished?

Demigod August 27 2009 1:39 PM EDT

If you'll give a hint, is this related to YOUR character?

mexitl August 27 2009 1:43 PM EDT

Yes, but it relates to many, many other CB players as well.

AdminShade August 27 2009 2:40 PM EDT

The RPM percentages of your forging work?

mexitl August 27 2009 2:51 PM EDT

I am in the 8 BA category, which affects the amount of BA that I can buy.

Zenai August 27 2009 3:14 PM EDT

Ahh yes @ 8/20 the amount of BA you can buy per day is 192

11,29,31,37,41,43

is either a break down of the total for this number or the increments in which you bought you BA for s Specific purpose like Positive CPs or Forging.

AdminShade August 27 2009 3:19 PM EDT

the last digits of prices of your BA?

Zenai August 27 2009 3:19 PM EDT

or the increment into which you bought/burned for training purposes

cube.the August 27 2009 5:16 PM EDT

forging cycle?

Admiralkiller August 27 2009 5:26 PM EDT

The challenge bonus for the 6 people on your fight list.

Or the challenge bonus your getting from one person for 6 different time periods.

AdminG Beee August 27 2009 6:14 PM EDT

Beer

kevlar August 27 2009 7:20 PM EDT

^seconds that

mexitl August 27 2009 7:32 PM EDT

Zenai has the first part of the answer. These are the increments in which I buy 192 of BA per day.

The second part of the answer is why I buy in these particular sets. It has nothing to do with strategy or game play, but has to do with me being a bit of a numbers freak.

mexitl August 27 2009 7:35 PM EDT

I'll post the answer at midnight, server time, if no one has it by then.

iBananco [Blue Army] August 27 2009 7:38 PM EDT

You regularly log in six times per day, and that's the only set of six distinct prime numbers which sum to 192.

Congrats, and thanks to all who played.

I'll post another one soon. I love number sets, and have quite a few things in my CB gameplay that relate to significant numbers.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 7:42 PM EDT

I'd prefer if it involved 42.

mexitl August 27 2009 7:45 PM EDT

yeah, because that particular meme is totally not played out.

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] August 27 2009 7:52 PM EDT

You can't "play out" (as you so very quaintly call it) THGTTG. ;)

Demigod August 27 2009 7:53 PM EDT

Argh, I would never have guessed that. Oh well, two good things came from this contest. I had fun spending a couple of minutes trying to figure out the correlation, and now we can finally get you the help you need.

Here you go, Mex

mexitl August 27 2009 8:11 PM EDT

HA! Nice.

AdminNightStrike September 3 2009 4:51 PM EDT

Hah!
