Ok,the first number is 72 (it has two ones), then 73, 74 ...

On the second, the number before the last has to be 42

This is using the unit digit as number Cubes, that is, two ones.

I don't understand the response:

How come the number starts at 72 and not 71?

Also, if the 42 is the next to last number in the number line then what would be the first number?
