What is the next number in the sequence? 2, 3, 10, 15, 26, 35, 50, ?

basically, the differences between them respectively, are 1, 7, 5, 11, 9, and 15.
divide it like this: 1, 7, 5, and 11, 9, 15
then take the sum of the last two digits in the first set, and subtract the first. so in this case, 7 + 5 -1.
you get 11, which is the next difference.
do this with the second set of 11, 9, and 15 and you'll get 13 as the next difference, meaning that 50 + 13 should be the next number.
that's how i got 63.
let me know what you guys think.
that was too easyalexk174 said:i got it a different way: =2+1=3 add 6 to 1 get 7 add 7 get 10 subtract 2 get 5 add 5 get 15 add 6 get 11 add 11 get 26 subtract 2 get 9 add 9 get 35 add 6 get 15 add 15 get 50 subtract to add 13 get 63 =[] this is the immature way to do it but i got it done in 3 minutes and I am only 12...
