# The end of the life!

$1\ 16 \ 41 \ 55 \ 79 \ 90 \ 103 \ 120 \ 123 \ ?$

What is the last number in this different sequence! If you find it, it will be the end of the life!

• If it helps anyone, the sequence of differences is: 15 25 14 24 11 13 17 3 – Khale_Kitha Mar 21 '16 at 18:17

• @question_asker Mua ha ha ha! – Khale_Kitha Mar 21 '16 at 18:23
• A direct number to letter sequencing comes to oynxkmqc which appears to be meaningless, even when using an unknown 9th letter. – Khale_Kitha Mar 21 '16 at 18:28
• Is it gonna somehow be the letter 'e'? You know, the END of the life? – Beastly Gerbil Mar 21 '16 at 18:52

135

because that becomes

APOCALYPSE.

Explantation:

Take each letter number (i-1) mod 26 in the alphabet. The sequence must increase so, the next occurance of e is at 135.

• @question_asker yes, unless this is a coincidence and the answer in completely different :-D – Carl Löndahl Mar 21 '16 at 19:05
• I was too lazy to check beyond 16 – question_asker Mar 21 '16 at 19:07
• I'm too distracted by the plantation. However, good job, Carl =D – Khale_Kitha Mar 21 '16 at 19:08
• Made a slight counting error, should be 135 instead of 134... – Carl Löndahl Mar 21 '16 at 20:10
• Just a fun bit of code [1,16,41,55,79,90,103,120,123,135].map(n=>(~-n%26+10).toString(36)) – Patrick Roberts Mar 22 '16 at 8:34
