Why do pattern events change

  1. Jul 24, 2015 #1
    I have several different patterns in my sheets. I use these patterns to determine whether the next number will be even or odd, go up or down in those cells on my sheets. Most of the patterns in columns STUV will mirror image themselves when you look at them. I attached a sheet with the formulas in them. These formulas get the draw number from an external book but I do not think you will need all the books to just look over this sheet and perhaps give me some suggestions. You will see some patterns in column R that may go like 246 246 246 2424 and then go. I am trying to see if there may be any key indicators within the Math I am doing or the patterns that can tell me BEFORE the pattern may be changing from the 246 to the 2424. Is there a way to see the mirror image coming BEFORE it actually occurs? Things like this. Anything to find as an indicator what may happen next

    I put a lot of notes on the sheet as far as how I get my patterns and numbers for your understanding. All the numbers you will see add up either by adding or subtraction to the Game numbers in column A which is explained on the sheets too.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated. The file is too large to load here

    FWIW - your 'sheet' example file is very difficult to read. IF you are using a spreadsheet, then I would assume you have functions defined (macros). IF you are uisng maple, matlab, or some other programming tool then please post that.

    Those might help. But as it stands, I think you will not get a meaningful answer.

    PS: try querying https://oeis.org/ for your sequences.

    Thanks Jim, the file has been uploaded to Dropbox Were you able to download it? If you need the file with the formulas I can provide that too All the macro does is feeds the new draw numbers to the external sheets which develop these patterns

    oeis.org - is an internet destination. It is about number sequences. If you enter a number sequence it can find it and give you information about it. Like its properties.

    Wow now this is very fascinating. I'll take a look at it @ week 32.
