ZOTTFFSSE PuzzleDate: 10/02/2002 at 12:22:00 From: Amy Frantz Subject: Sequence This is an extra credit problem from my son's 3rd grade math class. What comes next in this letter sequence: ZOTTFFSSE. Explain. We started by translating each letter into its corresponding number (i.e., Z = 26, O = 15), but that didn't help. We still can't figure it out. Help!
