i'm assuming flanked means between, that's not a word we use here. anyhow, that was really hard.

Posted by mrtickles01/01/06
What's wrong with 'flanked'? Made sense to me.

What a great way to start 2006. Now let's see is this or is it not a prime number. Lord knows it was "flanked" by a rough 2005, but most of us made it one way or another. Glad we had Briangle to keep our brains addled. :D HAPPPPPPPY NEW YEARRRRR EVERY1!!! 8) :) 8) :) 8)

Great teaser!!! Didn't got that one!!! :D

Posted by coachpisco01/01/06
I knew it had something to do with prime numbers, but I couldn't figure it out fully enough. Very good. :) :-?

Posted by thimblenoggin01/01/06
:D Wow. what a wakeup! I was convinced it was a series of additions-4+2=6+6=12+6=18+12=30+12=42 +18=60 etc. Nice One Happy New Year! :D

Posted by shawneeo01/01/06
Yeah, I thought it was a series of addition, but addition of what? Anyway, very hard, for math ret////, I mean math challenged people like me. Prime nos. are one of those things that we don't think of very much, heehee! Very good! Thanks! :D HAAAAPPY NEW YEAR!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Posted by iteachkids01/01/06
OUCH! I, too, was going for an adding pattern. :o Happy 2 :lol: :lol: 6!!!

Posted by sequoia-mom01/01/06
I guessed the same pattern as thimblenoggin :D Oh well, great teaser and Happy New Year!! 8)

Posted by saleprice01/01/06
I too was on the addition path with a couple of multiplication & minuses, but I was obviously on the wrong road Hee hee well Happy New Year to one & all!!

Posted by Bastet01/01/06
Like Thimblenoggin, I thought it had to do with addition, also. The teaser was hard, and therefore very fun. :)

Posted by mr_brainiac01/01/06
I wasn't even close to thinking in that diirection! Too busy looking for differences between numbers or looking for factors, I got stuck in a rut.

Posted by jabdr01/01/06
Well, you got me for sure. I was going crazy trying to figure out the add-on pattern. Prime huh? I like mine rare :) 8)

Posted by lindquist_2501/01/06
Whatever. I just wrote down how much each number differed from the next one and came up with a pattern. Henceforth, I came up with 114, 126, and 138.

Posted by lindquist_2501/01/06
And it was wrong. But whatever. Smart thinking

Posted by Barticus01/01/06
Stumped me. :( :( The distribution of numbers reminded me of primes, but I was still trying to add subtract and multiply. Excellent puzzle. :wink:

Posted by bookerj0701/01/06
that was hard, i went throught this whole other thing hahaha cool though i never even thought of prime numbers! :lol:

Posted by settra62601/01/06
didnt get it myself, i thought adding 6 was part of the pattern, but what ever. great teaser.

Posted by bootscooter5801/01/06
I'm with all the adders... great puzzle to start the new year. Keep them coming!!! :-? :-? :) :)

Posted by WJSMama01/01/06
I thought it had something to do with adding too, but saw that it didn't work further in the pattern. Great one! You totally got me :D

Posted by ragethe3rd01/01/06
