So anyway, the little lady gave me this number pyramid to solve (she didn't say why, we're both out of college as of December). I am to deduce the next three lines. Now I'm no math slouch (I'm a Chemist for crying out loud) and I usually own these things, but so far this thing's just been stumping me for quite some time now. Anyone willing/able to take this burden off my shoulders? (*'s added to maintain proper columns and spacing)
I haven'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't jumping out at me.

The objective is to figure out the pattern these number are following in and write the next lines in the pyramid. [/b][/quote]
OK, I get it now. This is a tough one.
