Re: Number in the series

Hi picon;

If you pair the numbers off you see that each pair sums to 23. The first number appears to be going up by 2 so I think the next 2 are 18 and 5.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
