# Sequence Question from past post

I recently saw a post about sequences. This made me remember some other post someone had posted here on Math.SE. He did not want answers but wanted general ways to tackle them. I did spend an hour or so on these and yet I could not come up with complete solutions to all of these. That is why I am reposting this with different question. What are solutions to these?

1: $\{4, 2 ,36, 4, 5, 1, 36, 16, 6, 3, 81, \ldots\}$

2: $\{\frac{1}{4},\frac{1}{4},\frac{1}{2},\frac{3}{2},6,\ldots\}$

3: $\{7,9,11,6,11,8,5,13,5,4,15,\ldots\}$

4: $\{2,1,2,3,2,9,9,0,1,1,9,\ldots\}$

5: $\{2, 1, 2, 3, 8, 0, 1, 9, 1, 2, 1,\ldots\}$

6: $\{4,2,5,9,5,11,13,7,16,17,9,\ldots\}$

The first three seem to have solutions:

1 $64,7,2,81,...$

2 $30,180,1260...$

3 $2,3,17,...$

I am looking for solutions for last three.

P.S. I accept (as pointed out in other thread) that you can take any number and generate a formula for sequence such that next term can be chosen as wished. But, I am looking for general terms that are solvable without much ado and with simplest formulas or patterns.

So when you say "solution" you mean "find the next three or four terms"? Oh, and can you give a link to the past post(s)? – Gerry Myerson Feb 21 '13 at 22:59
yes, i do mean so. Link – user45099 Feb 22 '13 at 6:51

These sequence problems are among the many that are collected here: m4maths.com/placement-puzzles.php?SOURCE=IBM – minopret Feb 22 '13 at 7:27
It's not related to. It's copy from. I clarified, I want solution to these that the original poster did not want. – user45099 Feb 22 '13 at 9:47
