**MathMate**, Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 4:59pmThis is (probably) a series with a recurrence relation:

a(n)=a(n-3)+a(n-2)+a(n-1)

Try

0=-1+0+1

1=0+1+0

2=1+0+1

...

37=6+11+20

Some call this tribonacci numbers, from

Fibonacci numbers where

a(n)=a(n-2)+a(n-1)

**MathMate**, Friday, April 13, 2012 at 7:02amBasically, you add the three last numbers to get the next, for example,

2+3+6=11, ...

So the next number is:

11+20+37 = 68

20+37+68 = ?
