What is the next number in this sequence?
1) 11247
2) 7865
3) 97630
4) 41562
Hint: there are only five numbers in this sequence and the fifth number is five digits long
I did differences. That didn't help.
I did a = 1, b = 2, .... That didn't help.
I still don't know what "the 'I cannot tell 5 lies' sequence" means.
I tried making a magic square, to no avail.
The sums of the digits of the numbers are: 1)15, 2)26, 3)25, 4)18, 5)?. Nope.
"there are only five numbers in this sequence" got me to thinking, "What are there five of, and how would you put them in number form?" And I drew a blank. Hope one of these random ideas helped someone else, because they didn't help me any.
