• Ah, I did a cursory search of Puzzling.SE, but didn't look elsewhere. I suppose it is a pretty obvious sequence. – VictorHenry Jul 24 '15 at 18:43
• In retrospect, it would have been better to use number -> answer clues instead of a number sequence (e.g. 11 -> 4, 27 -> 8, etc) – VictorHenry Jul 24 '15 at 18:46

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
|

• Type on an old school calculator 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. Then count the number of segments each number has... – qwertylpc Jul 24 '15 at 18:43
• Sure, I just need to figure out the formatting – Bard Jul 24 '15 at 18:44
