Inspired by doop:

67, 58, 96, [ ]

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

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

good luck =)

good luck =)

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 :-)

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

very creative lammy, unfortunately its not correct though :)

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?

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

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

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*

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

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. :)

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

(>.<)

67, 58 (multiples of 9)

96, 84 (multiples of 12)

(>.<)

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

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
