    I've been staring at this a good part of the morning but am getting nowhere. Any hints?

    1 9 8 6 4 2 2
    2 3 1 8 8 4 2

    I got no freakin clue. I've tried everything I can think of, even assigning each number to a musical note and seeing if it makes a recognizable tune. It didn't.

    Is it something really simple or is it something confusing where everything depends on everything else and we need to solve some sort of matrix equation to get the answer?

    Or is it just random?

    is it some kinda sequence? Doesnt appear like one. I mean if u were to give us the 4th line....is there a way to get to the 5th and so on? If yes....then i think u should give us the 4th line. If not, even then, i'd rather u give us the 4th line.

    is this something with no logical sequence like the digits of pi, starting at the 12th or something?
  9. 02 Nov '05 04:26
    no, there is a mathematical way to determine the next line, then the next, ad infinitum.

    Every time I think I have something, it evaporates after a couple of digits. My head hurts.

    And Copperfield uses "simple" props, but you have to know how they work...
    I'm sure once this is solved (or when you let us in on it) it will appear very simple.

    i'm not trying to appear rude. i was hoping someone would latch on to the solution. it's even possible i mucked something up, so i'll have a second look.

    i'm guessing that may b there is a sequence each number in the line.

    Is the first number 8?

    1 7 3 2 5 5 1
    1 9 8 6 4 2 2
    2 3 1 8 8 4 2
    4 9 2 8 7 3 4
    8 _ _ _ _ _ _
