first service member or cop to post gets it (after my last post on P2 with 'train wreck' in it)


15
n = (n1) + (n2) ETA: No 30 rounders for me. My government mommy says they're bad. 

12 if it's simply n * 3
15 if it's the previous 2 numbers summed together 18 if every even numbered position in the sequence is equal to the preceding odd numbered position * 2 

Quoted:
12 if it's simply n * 3 15 if it's the previous 2 numbers summed together this.. 

Quoted:
What number comes next in the sequence and what is the formula for the sequence? 3,6,9,... The prize is 100 internets. Possibly a 30rd thermold mag if I feel like it and winner pays shipping. When somebody gets the correct answer, I'll say, but otherwise nary a peep can be read from me. Those 3 numbers hold a key to the universe 

It could be several answers.
Like 12 or 15 for instance. 3 +3 =6 +3=9 +3=12 or 3+6=9 +6= 15 + 9= 24 These are stupid questions that have multiple answers that are supposed to gauge intelligence. lol

Question is "What number comes next?" First number you come to is 3, so 3 is the answer. The formula is exactly what the OP typed out. 3,6,9,... 

It depends. There is no one right answer  only possibilities. But what's more important is how you feeeeeel about the problem.

Maybe I'll provide a hint later. 

36. Square the number two spaces back from the last in the sequence


Quoted:
27. multiply every other number. Right answer,wrong formula. 3*6=18\2=9;next would be 6*9=54\2=27. 

Quoted: Quoted: 27. multiply every other number. Right answer,wrong formula. 3*6=18\2=9;next would be 6*9=54\2=27. How do you know that is the right formula? 

I don't like the prize and others have covered some good answers

36. Square the number two spaces back from the last in the sequence That was my second answer. 

Possible answers:
00:00 / 12:00 : As on an analog clock, advancing by quarters. 10 : Advancing by three units, written in duodecimal. C : Advancing by three units, in a base higher than 12. Feel free to substitute any of the above proper answers into base notation other than decimal, yielding, perhaps, 13. E  So that when written "3 6 9 E" the sequence can be read correctly even if rotated 180 degrees. 15 : Sequence of prime numbers, each multiplied by 3. 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 = 3, 6, 9, 15, 21... 27 : n = (n1) * (n2) / 2 The next number of the sequence would be 121.5 36 : n = (n2)^2 The next number would be 81, then 1296. Shall we just keep guessing?

not enough information to complete the sequence. there are a lot of correct answers to the question. we may as well guess "a number between 1 and 10"

Where has Ducky gone? NEVERMIND . Hint: A true mathematician would get the answer right and be able to state why. (I'm looking for a math based explanation, not some grammar tricks or some such)
