For those people who don't know what a triangular number is, http://mathworld.wolfram.com/TriangularNumber.html is a very nice introduction (helped me anyway).

I got the triangular part right away, but couldn't get the other part... the EASY part, now that I know what it was!

I realized they were all triangular numbers but couldn't figure out the correlation between them.

Nice teaser, I don't think it is so hard.

Orangutans forced to watch Days Of Our Lives could have aced that one. Try and think of something harder next time.

Hardest one on site? I got this one right away as i knew half of them and so i got the pattern. Only had to do a bit of googling for the missing ones. I will admit it's brilliant though, good job!

Heh .. I was trying to work out a pattern before I realized they were palindromic.

Lol................. 1,3,6,10,55,66,171
corresonds with 1,2,3,10,11,18...

Okay, maybe it's 123, 123... 1+0=1... 1+1= 2... 1+8=.. damn.

Didn't want to go down the line calculating.. so I googled palindromic triangular numbers

what's a triangular number?

Took longer to figure out what the next three palindromic triangular numbers were than it did to figure out the rule.

Pretty nice teaser, but not terribly difficult.
