# What’s the next number in the sequence?

I have a numeric sequence: 1,4,5,5,7,9,9,6,6,11,13,11,? What is the next number in the sequence and what pattern does the sequence follow? This sequence has to do with prime numbers and the sequence can approach infinity. Good luck, I came up with this myself; I had one idea that I added more and more factors into.

• I didn't downvote, but I will point out that a good puzzle on this site should be solvable without resorting to spoilered hints. In the puzzle you link, the small poem before the sequence narrows down the possibilities as to what the pattern could represent, whereas here it doesn't seem possible to figure out the pattern without looking at the hints. If you can move the hints you've provided out of the spoiler blocks, that would be a massive improvement! – HTM Dec 7 '19 at 1:02
