## Sequence

Probably not easy:

3 7 14 23 36 49 66 83

What number comes next?

 It's not quite that arbitrary. Here's a hint: if I continued the sequence for 20 more terms then it would be much easier to figure out. In fact, from looking at the 10th and 20th terms you could get it almost immediately.

## Sequence

Are you sure 67 is correct for slot 7? I have a formula that gives all of them except it generates 66 for the 7th term.

EDIT: To check, my formula generates 104 for the 9th term.

 I agree with Moo, and assume the next term to be 104 [in white].
 You're right, I did make a mistake. 104 is the answer! Congratulations.
