All right you losers. I have to give you a clue eh?*Originally posted by AThousandYoung***I am going to give a list of groups of numbers of the form**

X,Y,Z

I'd like to see if anyone can discover the missing number, marked with a question mark (?). If you figure it out, just give the number.

Here it is:

2,3,13

2,5,14

2,3,[b]?

8,1,3

1,9,27

1,(undefined),8[/b]

The numbers are somewhat related to the other numbers in their group. The first two are kind of dependent on the last one. If the last one is large, the second will be large as well, and the first small. The one with (undefined) is the exception. - 11 May '05 08:15 / 1 edit

Another clue. If you sum the first numbers, you get a result which makes sense; the sum of 16 is a useful number. Likewise with the second numbers, if you leave out the undefined value. However summing the third numbers does not give a meaningful result.*Originally posted by AThousandYoung***I am going to give a list of groups of numbers of the form**

If the last set (the one that includes an undefined value) did not refer to a special case, the second value in that set would be 3. But it does refer to a special case, so it's undefined. - 13 May '05 03:15

Nope.*Originally posted by Palynka***?=5 ?**

Another clue.

The third number represents a maximum for the set.

I'll add in a minumum value as well; this will be the fourth value and represents the minumum for the same thing that the third value represents the maximum for.

2,3,13,7

2,5,14,14

2,3,?,2

8,1,3,1

1,9,27,21

1,(undefined),8,5 - 20 May '05 09:19 / 1 edit

More clues.

Religion has something to do with the first set.

Masonry has something to do with the second.

Animals have something to do with the third.

The Soul is represented by the fourth set, according to at least one expert in his field (a field related to what these sets represent).

Homosexuality has something to do with the second to last,

and Government has something to do with the last.
