Can't help you with the script suggestions but it is a nice idea.

I think I have the answer and I don't think this is a REAL numbers problem. 1, 5, 10, 25 and 50 are all U.S. currency coins. The next coin in sequence would be the 1 dollar coin which == 100. So the next number would be 100.

I could be wrong but I see no relations between the numbers otherwise.
