fifty six

Zenai July 2 2012 10:39 PM EDT

Well upon closer inspection Anebrilith seems to have it right.

I saw a different pattern, The first added 7, the next added 6 to the total accrued, so I added 5 on top of that total accrued. So 7, 7+6, then 7+6+5. Which would make the total 54.

However 43 is more logical in hindsight. The patter is 1,2,3,4 for the first numeral and 6,3,6,3 for the second.

But no matter the answer nice little mind exercise ;-)

Sorry Zen, but I think you're going crazy:

I think the answer lies elsewhere, but I got lazy after checking off his player ID and start date. :(

Damnit, I found it, but I already wasted my guess!

Also, check your first number.

Feeling too lazy to search CB for the answer. So I'll just go the mathematical route.

16, 23, 36, ?
1st > 2nd: 4 + 31
2nd > 3rd: 4 + 32
3rd > 4th: 4 + 33???

Guess: 71

nope, nope, nope...might as well give it to Demi! He found the answer and it is 49.

Woohoo! It was a fun search.
