Math or Something Like It


What is the next number in this sequence, 1, 11, 21, 1211, 111221, 312211? BBVA Compass’ Andrés Cueto was the first to respond correctly, and explained the pattern in a clear way: Each number is the enumeration of the previous number’s digits. So if the last number is 312211, it would be described as: one 3, one 1; two 2s, two 1s. So the next number would be 13112221. Cushman & Wakefield's Will Condrey was our randomly selected winner; both gents won tickets to Bisnow's Capital Markets Summit.
