Based on some property of the number 60. I don't think you can consider this the true pattern though. I'm sure it would break down somewhere, like when we reach decimals.Senshihttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11447141898267130433noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3802979373213475425.post-24212260728817525122010-04-11T08:54:44.159+05:302010-04-11T08:54:44.159+05:30I got 12, 10 also but i dont know if my way is rig...I got 12, 10 also but i dont know if my way is right. Here is how I did it.<br /><br />60, 30, 20, 15, ?, ?<br /><br />I ask myself what do i have to do to 60 to get 30.<br /><br />I can subtract by 30, or multiply by 1/2.<br /><br />Subtracting issued no pattern so i divided.<br /><br />60*.5 = 30<br /><br />but 30*5 = 15 not 20.<br /><br />so now my issue is with 20. So I look at 30, 20, 15<br /><br />30*5 gave me 15 but there is a 20 in the middle.<br /><br />So I worked backwards. What do I have to do to 20 to get 15? Add 5<br /><br />15*.5= 7.5<br /><br />7.5+4.5 = 12 <br /><br />I added 5 to 15 to get 20<br /><br />So i added 4.5 to 7.5 to get 12. .5 less<br /><br />12*.5 = 6<br /><br />6+4= 10<br /><br />So i think there where two patterns<br /><br />Multiplying by .5 and adding .5 less to each even number. Dont know if i make sense or if im right but that how i got 12, and 10Alexnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3802979373213475425.post-73158002104192176772010-04-08T21:27:49.377+05:302010-04-08T21:27:49.377+05:3012, 1012, 10Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3802979373213475425.post-4525983273715575602010-04-08T21:23:29.750+05:302010-04-08T21:23:29.750+05:3012, 1012, 10Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
