You know those tests where you get a series of numbers and have to find out the underlying rule.

Here's one for traders: the rate of a certain currency follows a simple rule, without any random deviation. The rates of the last 12 days:

3, 6, 6, 8, 8, 7, 7, 9, 8, 8, 6, 9

If you can figure the rule, you know when to buy or sell and you'll get obscenely rich. What's the rates of the next 3 days?

2. 9, 11, 10

3. It's the number of letters in the name of the number in the list of integer numbers
one = 3, two = 3, three=4 etc......

ten=3, eleven=6, twelve=6, thirteen= 8 etc.

so the next in sequence would be
twentytwo=9, twentythree=11, twentyfour=10 etc.

9, 11, 10, 10, 9, 11, 11, 10, 6, 9, 9, 11, 10, 10, 9, 11, 11, 10, 5, 8, 8, 10, 9, 9, 8, 10, 10, 9, 5, 8, 8, 10, 9, 9, 8, 10, 10, 9, 5, 8, 8, 10, 9, 9, 8, 10, 10, 9, 7, 10, 10, 12, 11, 11, 10, 12, 12 etc. etc.

you just wanted us to do your homework for you didn't you?

Here's one I read a long long time ago in a brain book that took me forever to figure out.

What number comes next?

15, 20, 20, 5, 5, 19, 19, 6...

6. When in doubt... add vodka.

Wow, I had not assumed that this puzzle would be solved so soon!

I had posted the same challenge on another big traders forum a week ago and no one there was able to solve it so far.

Forget that other forum. All the brains are on this forum.
