# Find the next number in this sequence?

Well I have tried a few moves but don't get anywhere! The second number is the first by removing the bottom left stick. Also the fourth is the third by moving also the bottom left stick to the right. I don't know what to do next.

• Pretty sure its going to be a 1, but don't know why – Beastly Gerbil Nov 4 '17 at 18:56

• It took me a while to understand, but for anyone else who doesn't understand it's the number of joins in each, so the 8 has 6 joins, the 9 has 5 joins, the 1 has 4 and so forth – Tas Nov 5 '17 at 7:55
