Hi!
I took the MCATs and I can remember one question was about number series stating:
5,3,8,8,11,13, ?

Whats the next number? I never could figure it out! And the doubt is still in my mind!

Anyone knows the answer? thanks!!

Although many answers may turn out correct, one likely candidate is 14. It just sounds like something they might do, interleaving two sequences together, namely 5,8,11,14,... and 3,8,13,.... Of course, I don't know why they expect people who haven't seen something like this to think of it.
