# Stupid Number Pyramid!!!!!

So anyway, the little lady gave me this number pyramid to solve (she didn&#39;t say why, we&#39;re both out of college as of December). I am to deduce the next three lines. Now I&#39;m no math slouch (I&#39;m a Chemist for crying out loud) and I usually own these things, but so far this thing&#39;s just been stumping me for quite some time now. Anyone willing/able to take this burden off my shoulders? (*&#39;s added to maintain proper columns and spacing)

********1
******1***1
******2***1
****1*2***1*1
**1*1*1***2*2*1
**3*1*2***2*1*1
1*3*1*1***2*2*2*1

I don&#39;t get it. What&#39;s the objective?

The objective is to figure out the pattern these number are following in and write the next lines in the pyramid.

I haven&#39;t put more than 5 minutes into it, so take it for what its worth. I think the next line in pyramid should total 18. But the sequence for the singular numbers on each side isn&#39;t jumping out at me.

OK, I get it now. This is a tough one.

LINE: 3 1 2 2 1 1

read as: one 3, one 1, two 2s, two 1s -- each line describes the numbers in the previous line

NEXT LINE: 1 3 1 1 2 2 2 1

AFTER THAT: 1 1 1 3 2 1 3 2 1 1
