Find the missing members?

0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 3, 0, ?, ?, ?

Hint 1

No arithmetic operations involved in developing the series. Lateral thinking needed.

Is it:

$1,1,0$, and the sequence is, in a 'normal font', the number of straight lines, reading backwards. So $9$ is all curves, so is $8$, $7$ is two straight lines, $6$=0 $5$=2, $4$=3, $3$=0, $2$=1, $1$=1. $0$=0.

This is a very simple answer which I believe works nonetheless.

0, 0, 2, 0, 2, 3, 0, 2, 3, 4, 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 0, ...

because

zeroes occur after skipping zero, one, two and so on terms and clearly the sequence starts at two.

  • $\begingroup$ Not right......... $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 11 at 8:47
  • $\begingroup$ Also... sequence only has ten numbers corresponding to zero to nine digits. $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 11 at 8:59

I think the answer is:

0, 0, and 5, respectively.

Explanation:

I looked this sequence up on the OEIS and found that A095759 would look sensible for this challenge.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ No..you would not find any of my sequences in oeis usually. $\endgroup$ – Uvc Jun 10 at 21:35
