  • $\begingroup$ Ah, I did a cursory search of Puzzling.SE, but didn't look elsewhere. I suppose it is a pretty obvious sequence. $\endgroup$ – VictorHenry Jul 24 '15 at 18:43

    $\begingroup$ In retrospect, it would have been better to use number -> answer clues instead of a number sequence (e.g. 11 -> 4, 27 -> 8, etc) $\endgroup$ – VictorHenry Jul 24 '15 at 18:46

The answer is

6

The explanation

Each number in the sequence corresponds to the number of segments needed to display a digit on a calculator's screen.
Digits: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Sequence: 6 2 5 5 4 5 6 3 7 6
|   The 1 here has 2 segemnts
|

|_| The 4 has 4 segments
