There is no straightforward mathematical pattern in the given sequence. Without any additional information or context, it is impossible to determine the next number in the sequence with certainty.

It's possible that the sequence is a pattern or a sequence of numbers that can be deduced using a mathematical formula or algorithm. However, based on the given numbers, there is no obvious pattern or formula that can be used to determine the next number in the sequence.

Therefore, without any additional information, the next number in the sequence could be anything, and it's impossible to say for sure what the correct answer is.

yea except there is a pattern

+5 +10 +20 +40 +80

it doubles every time

From Chat GPT 4.0.

I know someone tried above - but it likely wasn't 4 - as this can solve it.

To determine the next number in the sequence, let's look for a pattern:

1, 6, 16, 36, 76

The differences between consecutive terms are:

6 - 1 = 5
16 - 6 = 10
36 - 16 = 20
76 - 36 = 40

The differences are increasing as follows:

5, 10, 20, 40

These numbers are multiples of 5:

5 = 1 * 5
10 = 2 * 5
20 = 4 * 5
40 = 8 * 5

It appears that the sequence of multipliers is doubling at each step:

1, 2, 4, 8

The next multiplier in the sequence would be 16, so the next difference in the original sequence would be 16 * 5 = 80.

To find the next number in the sequence, add this difference to the last term:

76 + 80 = 156

Don't sh*t on ChatGPT. I asked that sh*t to create a business plan for a nonexistent business and it spit that sh*t out in less than 20 seconds.

Crazy that’s the correct solution cause I was multiplying by 2 and then adding four and got 156.

Thanks OP.

fu*k cheating and looking anything up like a dummy. I dig things like this. Its great for you to use your damn brain in ways you probably dont too often. So I sat there for a few minutes trying different sh*t out. The patterns seems to be each number added to itself and then adding four to that.


1+ 1 + 4 = 6
6 + 6 + 4 = 16
16 + 16 + 4 = 36
36 + 36 + 4 = 76
76 + 76 + 4 = 156

This is what I did. Simple pattern.

Multiply each number by 2 then add 4
