So John came into the office the other day, baffled by his kids (something that happens quite often). One of his kids is a teenager and, like many teens these days, goes through the day with her nose buried in her phone.
"I was trying to talk to her," John said, "but she just wouldn't look up from her phone. Then she finally stopped and said 'Fine. I'll put away my phone if you tell me this: what's the next item in this sequence?'
444, 7, 44, 666, 66, ??
"I'm just trying to talk to her and this is what I get?" Can you help John out?
Ready for the answer?
Look at the letters below each number on the dial pad of your phone. The third letter for 4 (thus, 444) is "I". The first letter under 7 is "P", and so forth:
- 444 => I
- 7 => P
- 44 => H
- 666 => O
- 66 => N
