    My guess would be incorrect.

    No, I can't guess. Don't feel like thinking that hard. What is the next number and how does the sequence work?

    Too much on my mind. Don't feel like thinking....

    6/7

    mycatsmom

    Don, How do you know 6 / 7 is the answer ? Why is there a slash between the 6 and the 7 ?

    16, 17

    its either this or 6.7

    there needs to be more information for the solution..

    deleted, I don't think it calls for decimals.

    actually its a compny name...14 mean alphabet number 14 that is N. same 15 means O.11 meant by K, 9 meant by I. so next is 1 that would complete Word "NOKIA"

    Well, duh. THAT makes sense. The question should have said "CODE" instead of sequence... not that I would have figured it out right away, but this isn't a sequence; it's a code.

    Nice!!

    9, 3

    is it   ,  12. ?

    one

    14, 15, 11, 9

    14 +1, -4, -2  Don't see a patter there. I could repeat it (+14,+15 +1, -4, -2)

    14  is 2 x 7     15 is 3 x 5    11 is 11 x 1 (prime)   9 is 3 x 3    Don't see a pattern there. 

    14 + 15 = 29 + 11 = 40 + 9 = 49   If I keep adding 11, then 9, I will have a pattern of sorts: 
    29 40 49 60 69 80 89 100 109    
    It doesn't explain why you'd start with 14 and 15 though.  

    So, NO, I don't have a good guess what comes next.

    The question hasnt been asked in the right context, I can normally work these out but you can't there is not enough information in the question there would be another number afterward or inront.

    It really doesn't have anything going for it, as far as I can see, and I really did try.

    Even on my scentific build a wall calculater couldnt answer it .. it can only be 6.7 or 16.17

    It's over my head, but I'll believe you.

    Nokia Okay great question!!!

    10 would be it as first 1 is added and then 4 is subtracted and then again 2 is subtracted so now 1 will be added . 

    Bob/PKB

    We start at 14. Why?

    sixteen,

    -1

    nreese

    14 15 11 9 -1

    1+4=5 1+5=6 1+1=2 9

    5+6=11 6+2=8 2+9=11 9+?=11

    This is the only pattern I could come up with!
