can anyone help solve this the question is what is the next line in the sequence

-----1-----
----1-1----
----2-1----
--1-2-1-1--
1-1-1-2-2-1
3-1-2-2-1-1

just ignore the dashes(only used them to make it look like a pyramid like the puzzle is) and imagine each number is in a cube, there is also no information on how many numbers are in the next line as you have to fill in the numbers and draw the boxes

Each line describes the line above.

So bottom line says

3 x 1 and 2 x 2 and 1 x 1

#### muon

Soldato
So in case you can't do next line it is

1 3 1 1 2 2 2 1

Ghost is right, not that I got it, but his pattern works for all the lines.

#### muon

Soldato
i tried that but the 5th line don't work ?

...

1-1-1-2-2-1
3-1-2-2-1-1

So bottom line says there are 3 x 1s followed by 2 x 2s followed by 1 x 1

oh i see now LOL

Just curious, what is this for? I'm bored and could do with some puzzles.

I'm someone who tends to read stuff out loud (well softly so I don't get weird looks ). If you do that it becomes apparent straight away when also looking at the line above.

I've seen it before, is my reason. Otherwise I'd probably be stumped.
