What are the next three numbers in this sequence?
6, 28, 496, 8128, ... ?
Please explain how you determined these three numbers.
(In reply to re(6): Real Answer
Penny... you remind me of Dan... ;-) a recent visitor to the site, who, like you, did everything he could to avoid the issue at hand... changing subjects and backpeddling to try and save face.
He, like you, was irked when he fell short of what he claimed to be able to do.
You used the "full solution" icon below (but go ahead and change it to hint or thought...).
You wrote: "Flawless Series" collapsed faster under my laser-like scrutiny than any other lame conundrum in the history of the brainteaser
And yet you still haven't once answered the problem.
At the risk of sounding repetitive...
I encourage you (and all flooblers) to actually submit a solution (preferably less than 3+ pages long). (Think.... less is more).
I suggest that you either demonstrate WHY that formula might work, or better yet, show the answer (and how you got it) without relying on Mersene primes. But, *sigh*, again [now a fourth time], I doubt Penny will be up to the task.
