The adjoning two numbers are added together.

1 + 1 = 2

1 + 2 = 3

2 + 3 = 5

and so on

This sequence is the Fibonacci sequence. Every number in this sequence is the sum of the two previous numbers:

1+1 = 2

1+2 = 3

2+3 = 5

3+5 = 8

5+8 = 13

The first seven numbers of the sequence are given, so to find the next four numbers add the two previous numbers.

Then you get:

1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89

So, the seventh, ninth, and eleventh numbers of this sequence are:

13,34 and 89
