I believe the answer is

20951420

If you use

A1Z26 conversion on your numbers,

you get

9 14 20 5 12, 12 9 7 5 14, 3 5 17 21 15, ?

Which translates to

INTEL, LIGEN, CEQUO.

You’re just missing

TIENT, which is 20 9 5 14 20, so the answer is 20951420.

    $\begingroup$ It’s hard to explain, but whenever I see numbers that are so weirdly put together like that, this is the first thing I try. Just happened to work out this time lol, @NaeemShaikh $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Wow you're a legend, all the other puzzles had no relationship to letters so I would never think of that. $\endgroup$
