Okay, so I was reading my local newspaper, and they had an article about a pub quiz, which had the following sequence:
762 - 774 - 571 - 742 - 629 - 796 - 794 - 861
And the question was to figure out the next two numbers. They provided the answers (see spoiler below) but I can't figure out what the reasoning behind it is. Usually, I'm quite capable of figuring these things out, and I get annoyed whenever there are lots of possible ways to continue the series. But now I can't even figure out any logic, let alone the one for the correct answer.
I've tried analyzing the difference between the numbers, differences between the digits of the numbers, checking if there are two or three series mixed together... I dunno, I'm probably missing somthing here.
Does anybody here have a clue?
The correct numbers are
719 and 643
according to the newspaper.
