Maths Week: Friday's puzzle of the day

We’re setting you a little brainteaser each day this week to highlight a drive to improve the country’s numeracy skills.

ENGAGE THOSE BRAINS, folks: we have a teasing question for you.

Each afternoon this week, we’ll be setting you a (not too) tough riddle to get the cogs whirring and test your mathematical mettle.

If this prospect fills you with either a. joy, or b. dread, the mathsweek.ie site is worth a look – with events for maths fans and for those who might feel the need to brush up on their numeracy skills. The events are running from now until Sunday.

Friday’s puzzle:

I found a piece of paper with the following list of numbers on it. The end of the note was torn off. What do you think the next number should be?

No multiple-choice suggestions today, folks – you’ll have to figure it out on your own :)

All answers will be revealed at 4.30pm on the site today.
