# Another 100k number contest (in Contests)

## QBPit Spawn[Abyssal Specters]July 3 2012 10:38 PM EDT

Inspired by doop:

67, 58, 96, [ ]

## Gohan[Ka-Tet of the Serene]July 3 2012 10:42 PM EDT

78, both numbers add up to 13 on the first 2, 15 on the 2nd.

not 78 :)

## Gohan[Ka-Tet of the Serene]July 3 2012 10:47 PM EDT

So after finding the answer out from Pit himself, i'm tossing 1m to the winner to figure this out.

good luck =)

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 3 2012 11:05 PM EDT

87

+3, -1 after a one number skip with one part of the pattern

Second part of the pattern I saw was -1, +1 from the previous number is the second part of the Pattern so both match up to 87 :-)

nope again :)

134

nope

## AdminLamunessJuly 4 2012 12:41 AM EDT

Completely random approach:

6[7], 5[8], 9[6]
The ones digit follows the pattern of alternating increasing negative/postive value:
+1, -2, +3

[6]7, [5]8, [9]6
The tens digit uses the ones digit pattern to determine it's value. Ignoring the first number in the sequence, it doubles the value of the ones pattern with the opposite alternative negative/positive value:
-1, +4, -6

Guess: 39

## QBPit Spawn[Abyssal Specters]July 4 2012 12:50 AM EDT

very creative lammy, unfortunately its not correct though :)

111

nope, sorry

80!

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 8:17 AM EDT

42 because it is the answer to EVERYTHING!

## QBPit Spawn[Abyssal Specters]July 4 2012 9:38 AM EDT

nope, nope and nope

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 9:49 AM EDT

How dare you say it is not true! The great robot hath said so! *Gets his towel and starts waving it around menacingly*

PS: This is funny but I think possibly a hint?

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 9:51 AM EDT

Gah! Operator error on the phone: This is fun but possibly a hint is in order?*

## QuyenJuly 4 2012 9:55 AM EDT

the next number is obviously 56, cause I believe thats how old pit is.

## QBPit Spawn[Abyssal Specters]July 4 2012 10:07 AM EDT

gah Q, wrong on both parts there

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 12:21 PM EDT

If I am right this is actually far more simple that I thought. (>.<)

The general Pattern is High, Low, High & Low

The Difference between 67 and 58 is 9 which is the key to this pattern however only half of it.

96 - 58 = 38
96 - 67 = 29
(another 9)
38 - 29 = 9 (annnnd 9 again)

But there is another difference in there. The difference is in the differences. Which is shown above 9 jumps to 29, then 29 to 38 which is 9 added. So the difference in the pattern would be a 20 so it should be 9,20.

9+20=29
29+9=38
38+20=58
58+9=67
67+20=87
87+9=96

Now let's reverse this logic. From the first pattern -20 then -9

96-9=87
87-20=67....ok so it works as we found another part of the pattern.
67-9=58 and another
58-20=38
38-9=29
29-20=9

Now remember the pattern was jumping 1 then 2 still following 9 then 20

So 58+9= 67, 67+29= 96 so go back one pattern that was jumped....20

96-20= 76 or to explain it better 67-9 and 96-20

So my answer is 76 otherwise I will say I am seeing things and have gone mad.......which is a possibility since this looks like it is alluding to a Birth Date 9/20/76.......lol *looks around all paranoid and such*

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 12:45 PM EDT

or the pattern is three back on the former pattern. 96 - 3 places is 58, then 67 - 3 Places is 29..........

## Gohan[Ka-Tet of the Serene]July 4 2012 12:50 PM EDT

With my 1m addition can I request that the winning number has to be more then a random guess? Someone will eventually get it by luck. Basically just want a reason with each guess, which most have given so far. :)

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 1:17 PM EDT

Wow I think I am insane now *freaks out*

67, 58 (multiples of 9)
96, 84 (multiples of 12)

It's just going back on place in the multiples
(>.<)

## Zenai[Cult of the Valaraukar]July 4 2012 1:30 PM EDT

And I am at odds with my phone now (>.<)
I was not trying to post that as it was the wrong one......*sighs*

67,58. both equal 13 when added to themselves

96, 69. both equal 15 when added to themselves

or the -1, +1 and -3, +3 theory.

So I go with 69.

Now I am done since I think my phone officially has it out for me.......lol

90 :)

00 or 08

## QBPit Spawn[Abyssal Specters]July 4 2012 5:37 PM EDT

not those either :)

## Unappreciated MisnomerJuly 4 2012 8:23 PM EDT

actually its either

50
or
78

## Unappreciated MisnomerJuly 4 2012 8:25 PM EDT

my reasoning behind the most recent choice has to do with:

4,5,6,7,8,9,0

6&7 are between 5&8

so between 9&6 IS 8&7!!!

87 or 78!!! or 5&0 which is outside of 9&6

## Elf X.7plus35kJuly 4 2012 8:27 PM EDT

the answer that you are looking for is 49!!? :D

34
