whats the next line? Some people might immediatly recognize the pattern. if you do, don't blurt out the answer at least until there are a couple responses.

why do you give more answers if the solution was given already? 🙄
i would like to have an explanation though. i got 323x while x can be anything. the pattern is that all rows and files have the same numbers then. therefore it doesnt matter what the last number is. but i guess thats not correct if it has to be 3232.

Are you guys guessing at the 5th row? Someone got the fourth already if you didn't see...

For anyone still trying to figure it out, don't concentrate too hard on the symmetry of it (which is probably the most obvious thing). Theres a simple rule that generates the whole pattern.

No, the pattern can be anything, as in any 'what's the next term in the ambiguously defined sequence' puzzle. My second answer just makes every column sum to 9; my first reflects crazyblue's query.

True, sequence puzzles can have any number of obscure solutions that involve some kind linear algebra equation of the last n terms. But this ones different i swear!

I hope this hint doesn't give too much away...... forget the math, think chess.
