The rule for 4, 16, 36 is doubling each number.

The rule for 2, 13, 33 is a finite sequence. You start will adding 11 to 2 then adding 10 to 13 then adding 9 to 33 and so on until you get to 1

Excellent reasoning.... but it's still not the rule... 🙂

LOL Swan!!!!!! I'm going crazy.

A rule that defines a sequence or a pattern?

Things that are arranged to follow a pattern or a rule?

I'm going to agree with 'no pattern, per se' unless it is defined broadly. But a 'rule' applies to these numbers; including the numbers which you cited. Is the rule of 3 to mean that three numbers are documented? If so, that's not the rule. 🙂

I feel so silly. It was kinda cool that I unconsciously followed the pattern with I wrote down my 3 numbers.

No reason to feel silly at all. I think we cite numbers in ascending order all the time rather than not. When specified/ warranted, then we jump to another arrangement. In this case, the 'rule' was so obvious that we oversaw it - is this a long stretch of Occams Razor in a way? 😀

Well, I felt pretty silly when JJ read my answers and laughed at my math mistakes asking, "How did you come up with that???" Thank goodness that I am smart enough to know that math is not my forte and have an online math teacher for him.

1. D

The letters are last letter, first letter, next to last, second letter, 3rd to last, 3rd letter ect.
The number pattern is alternating between 2nd and 3rd with the letters 5,4,6,3,7

2. C

First letter starts with C and then every other letter. Second and third letters start at M and skip every other letter.

3. C.

Start with S then to C and D. Then each letter after S followed by the next two letters in order after D.
