Here's a hint:  You will never see the number 4, and three is always a coincidence.

A final hint, the last digit of all numbers in the sequence must always be the same.  And one or zero is the only logical starting point, I don't know why anyone ever chose 2.

I misread the question, read it as what are the next 3 lines - that's why I stopped there - oh well...

MusicMan .....i would appreciate if you wouldn't say stuff like that to me.

I already know how the pattern goes, otherwise i wouldn't be holding this riddle.  If noticed i changed it around from the original riddle that's like this.

Good job Robin

qwaletee.. you said 0 and 1 are the only logical starting points.. not true

this puzzle only tells what the line before, therefore the starting point may be anything you want.

Example:

3
13
1113
3113
132113

3
one 3
one 1 one 3
three 1's one 3
one 3 two 1's one 3

you may start anywhere you like...

learning_t0_pr0gram,
> qwaletee.. you said 0 and 1 are the only logical starting points.. not true
Not so.  The number 0 alone makes sense, because the position previous to the first postition is treated as null, and ergo, it is 0 of anything.  So teh 0 accurately represents the "zeroeth" item.  The number 1 also makes sense in this context, because it can represent 1 of nothing... but 2?  There aren't two repeats of nothing! (Yes, I know, 1*0 = 2*0, but minimilaism is usually used in sequence calculations.)

1 repeats of nothing

2 repeats of nothing
3 repeats of nothing
4 repeats of nothing
.

Which is why I say, minimalism is the rule.

Once I have identified the run at its minimum, that is the number I shoudl be using.

it doesn't really matter anyway..

the pattern is going to be the exact same, except whatever number u start with is going to be at the end of the line..

the rest of the numbers are the same
