in thread (homework) Find Series from list of integers

Slight correction, the problem is not that you can't determine an equation that will generate the sequence; the problem is there are an infinite number of possibilities.

Basically you need to define your criteria better. The only way to do this is to understand what is generating the sequence of numbers.
