Patterns upon patterns

Post by Philosophy Explorer » Thu Jul 13, 2017 3:23 am

How do you get from these four numbers: 1 2 3 4 to 24?

How do you get from these four numbers: 2 3 4 5 to 48?

How do you get from these four numbers: 3 4 5 6 to 80?

Study them well.

Add one to the last number to get a successor and add one to each successive successor nineteen times.
How do you get from these four numbers: 2 3 4 5 to 48?
Add one to the last number to get a successor and add one to each successive successor forty two times.
How do you get from these four numbers: 3 4 5 6 to 80?
Add one to the last number to get a successor and add one to each successive successor seventy three times.

I didn't phrase the question "How do you get from the last number to the target number?" All four starting numbers in each set participate equally toward the target number.

Try again.

Towards idiot. And unless you have made these up yourself there's not a lot of point in posting them. You could just google them or get them out of your number puzzle book and post thread after thread of them. :roll:

Your frustration is showing. You won't find them on the internet as I did make them up. The only number puzzle book I would have is the one I write myself. Btw I don't figure you to be a mathematician so I wonder what attracts you here?

Right. Just like you 'wrote' that thing you copy-pasted. Plagiarist. You are the biggest idiot I have ever encountered, and on the internet that's really saying something.

I defy you to find where I copy-pasted from and you can get Arising to help you out because I know it's not on the internet.

"You are the biggest idiot I have ever encountered." Can I put that on my resume. :lol:

Not everything is on the internet. I mean, please. A rabidly nationalistic, barely literate yank moron, who has never before strung together more than one sentence on here, two at the most, suddenly writes an ENTIRE paragraph in English rather than bastardised-by-Americans English?? Give me a break. It's not hard to tell when someone hasn't written something him/herself.

Prove it, visitor from outer space.

I don't need to prove it. Just the fact that you used the correct 'towards' not just once, but twice in the paragraph was proof enough, not to mention the fact that you didn't have a clue what most of it was about. This is how examiners can weed out plagiarists. Apart from obvious clues it's an almost instinctive thing. Not that I care, but you are such a little weasel who likes to be as annoying as possible that you deserve to be exposed as a plagiarist. 8)

I don't see why as my answer is correct but if you wish to be picky.

Start with the first number and add one to get a successor(which will be the same number as in your pattern) and add one to each successive successor twenty two times.

Start with the first number and add one to get a successor(which will be the same number as in your pattern) and add one to each successive successor forty five times.

Start with the first number and add one to get a successor(which will be the same number as in your pattern) and add one to each successive successor seventy six times.

All the numbers are participating equally towards the result.

Is that in your secret files on me? My oh my. (btw your secret files on me are woefully inadequate).

Not really because you're adding 22 with the first set of numbers, 45 with the second set and 76 with the last set.

Not really, I'm adding one to the first and then producing the rest by adding one to the next. It fits the pattern you gave, i.e. it produces the pattern you gave and it reaches the correct result.
