Can you guess the next number in this sequence? 14, 15, 11, 9, ?

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

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

mycatsmom

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

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.
Bob/PKB

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
Bob/PKB

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

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" ;)

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!
