    What comes next?

    2,0,3,0,4,8,1,5,4,2,4,7,8,6,8,2,1,2,7,3,...

    How about you telling us the answer?

    That's boring! I'll hand out a hint, though: it's a generally well known sequence in disguise, but that sequence is not generally known as a sequence...

    Answer in white Add 1 to each digit. Easy as pie

    I should have noted that the answer is 5.

    You could have made the problem more difficult by giving more information. What is the next number in this sequence?

    2,0,3,0,4,8,1,5,4,2,4,7,8,6,8,2,1,2,7,3,5,1,5,3,2,2,7,2,1,6,8,4,...

    Well, I tried to avoid any zeros, heh. I guess the answer could be -1, but that really doesn't seem quite right. Maybe 9?

    i dont get it, what do you meant by adding?

    Here is the original sequence:
    2,0,3,0,4,8,1,5,4,2,4,7,8,6,8,2,1,2,7,3,...
    Here is the same sequence obtained by adding 1 to each digit.
    3,1,4,1,5,9,2,6,5,3,5,8,9,7,9,3,2,3,8,4,...
    Note the connection between this sequence and the number [itex]\pi[/itex].
