This sequence is infinite, the first 9 numbers are given. What are the 10th and 11th number?

Read more...I seem to have found a different solution to the one you got, but it works with the pattern.

Original pattern:

|10 - 15|25 - 35| 55 - 65 | 85 - 95 | 115 - ? | ? - …

Sub-pattern 1: |10x2-5=15|15x2-5=25|25x2-15=35|35x2-15=55|55x2-45=65|65x2-45=85|85x2-75=95|95x2-75=115|115x2-?=?|

Sub-pattern 2: The pattern doubles then starts by subtracting "5" but then jumps to subtracting 15 after the 5 was subtracted twice. So -5 twice, then -15 twice, then -45 twice, then - 75 twice… Going by this, it seems to triple for the first jump, then triple again, but the jump to 75 is not a triple, so that can't be it.But if you start at 5, then 15, (15 being 5x3), then 45 (which is 5x9) then 75 (which 5x15) you see sub-pattern 2 wich is multiples of 5 increasing by 6 (3,9,15…making the next number in the sequence 21) so using that 5x21 is 105 and if you plug 105 into sub-pattern 1 115x2-105=125 then 125x2-105=145.

But when you put 125,145 into the answer I get it wrong, so there must be another pattern right?

But if you start at 5, then 15, (15 being 5x3), then 45 (which is 5x9) then 75 (which 5x15) you see sub-pattern 2 wich is multiples of 5 increasing by 6 (3,9,15…).

But then you forgot 1 as the first multiplier…

5=1*5
15=3*5

45=9

75=15

There is increment of 2 between 1 and 3, not 6.

So neither of your sequences would work.

i took out the 5 (ie made the sequence 2-3-5…) to look at the numbers without the confusing factor and that really helped. It made the light bulb go off so to speak.
