&gt; &gt;I was given the following problem and I came up with an answer
&gt; based
&gt; &gt;on logic. I am in mensa and have a high IQ but my skills are not as
&gt; &gt;sharp as they used to be. Anyone who knows the solution, please e-
&gt; mail
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;Problem:
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;1
&gt; &gt;11
&gt; &gt;21
&gt; &gt;1211
&gt; &gt;111221
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;What comes next in the sequence?
