dttom: did you make any attempt to read any of the posts? You are supremely behind.

well the first five look right. anyone feel like writing a computer program to come up with the next anwser?

I don't get it... I mean, I see nothing even close to a patern... is it too complex or too simple? Or can someone give me a hint (maybe in PM?)

assuming demosthenes is right...

would this sequence ever have a number higher than 3?

##### Share on other sites

no.

[hide] the most you can get is 1 one and then 1 some other number. you could never have 1 one followed by 1 one, that would just be 2 one. same thing for any other number, you can only have 3 threes, then 3 twos. so you can have 1112, but if you were ever going to write 1111 it would just be 21[/hide]
