Numerically the answer can also be

12, 9.

The first set of numbers is increasing by one, the second set of numbers is increasing by 3.

not many people use the days of the week for series teasers...

i dont get it...

without the hint it's nearly impossible.

that was weird like it shouldnt go in the series catagories yeah.. confusing

Fantatsic I LOVE maths series/problems like this!! I learnt a similar series in year 7 at school, and I know the series' have a certain name *is thinking furiously trying to remember it* lol. I wondered if it was days of the week at first but starting with monday didn't work, then i suddenly thought of starting with sunday and I got it! Please carry on creating teasers like this, they're brilliant! That's really cool that you've made me revise something I hadn't realised I'd remembered lol, thanks a bunch!

Honestly the Calendar hint isn't a good hint! that makes people think of months such as i did! but i also realize that there isn't any other real way to give a hint on it! so it could go both ways i guess! But on the other hand GrEaT tEaSeR!

ya... um... it was good... i guess...
