Guess the 6th

It has been a while since I last posted a riddle and for some strange reason, I have been getting some guess-the-answer-and-open-the-file-and-fill-in-your-name kind of forwarded mails.

These mails basically has an excel spreadsheet which has been password protected. There will be a riddle attached to it and the answer to the riddle is the password to the attached spreadsheet. Once you managed to break the code, you can then open the spreadsheet and fill in your name and you can also see those who managed to break the code before you.

I have gotten a few and I am just going to let you all in on a simple one, just to stimulate our very slow brain on a Friday.

1
2
6
42
1,806
?

What’s the 6th number?

Happy guessing and have a wonderful weekend… It’s Matta Fair!

WY Kam 甘永元 said...

all the lazy people above, would have done what i have done...

1,
1(2) = 2,
2(3) = 6,
6(7) = 42,
42(43) = 1806,
1806(1807) = 3263442,

GOOGLE it. lol. it's true, google is making us stupid!

HopefulPessimist said...

Flower In The Crannied Wall

Flower in the crannied wall,

I pluck you out of the crannies,

I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,

Little flower---but if I could understand

What you are, root and all, and all in all,

I should know what God and man is.

given the growth rate... the formula must be some algebraic multiplication table... since there's only 1 variable (i.e. the base number).. there are 2 possible fomulas as follows:

X = y*y+y..
or
X = y * (n+1)where base n = Y

where base Y = 1

both are general algebra replacement formulas...
