Well, starting backwards from 48 to 29 is 19, then to 26 is 3, then to 13 the diff is 13, then to 10 is 3 again, then the diff is 5, then three again to 2.

So, I'm guessing the 1 doesn't belong. This has been driving me crazy all day. It was on an IQ test.

48 is out of sequence. Pattern is double and add 3. :)
Very good :?

double 1, = 2. Add 3 = 5, double 5 =10. Add 3 = 13, double = 26, add 3 = 29. Double 29 = 58, not 48.

or: x2, +3, x2, +3....

Ok I have a brain tester for ya about MONEY:

3 Guys go to Motel to rent a room(no they aren't gay, just cheap), the bell hop says the room will cost $30 a night so each guy pays $10 dollars each.

Later that evening the manager comes in and says that the bell hop overcharged them and the room is only $26 a night and gives the bell hop the $4 dollars to return to the 3 guys. Each guy gets one dollar back and they give the bell hop the 4th dollar as a tip.

Now here's the problem, Since each of the 3 guys got a dollar back, they only paid $9 dollars each and 9x3=$27 dollars plus the one they gave the bell hop makes $28 dollars. The room originaly cost the $30 bucks so, What happened to the two other dollars?

If the room was 26.00 then each persons share was $8.67. When they received the dollar back that added up to ( 8.67 + 1 ) x 3 = 29.01. They should have given the bellhop 99 cents but they rounded it to a dollar. :)

8

The pattern (starting with 2) is add 1, double. Add 1, double.... 8 doesn't belong.
