    Question The fifth number of the sequence

    Everyone appears to have forgotten that there is a missing number in the sequence- the fifth numeral.

    Sequence as we surmise up til now;
    1,20,5,14, _,8
    or
    1,20,5,14,18,7,6 ( the one of the eighteen takes the spot of the 5th number)

    What numeral does everyone feel is the mysterious 5th?????

    As I surmised the other day in another thread, the sixth number is clearly 3 making my answer as follows:
    1,20,5,14,_,3

    If we are guessing at other numbers I submit the following for consideration although I have no proof or reasonable theory as to the actual value of the fifth number.

    1,20,5,14,9,3

    More Math:
    There is a 1 in 15 chance of guessing at the 5th number...assuming you have correctly guessed at the 6th. Otherwise, you have a 1 in 240 chance of correctly guessing both number simultaneously.

    How does the number 3 fit in with the clue: The sixth number is the second number used to open the compartment in National Treasure Book of Secrets?

    When Ben Gates opens the compartment to retrieve the presidents book the 6 number combination is 234786, and as the other compartment(S) are on the twin desks, which use the same number to open them, this is the one I'm going with.

    I agree. This is the one that makes the most sense to me too.

    Out of curiosity, did anybody ever figure out something to do with the non-repeating numbers that show up on the web site? The ones like 57429 and 76241?

    I'm asking because 234786 puts me in mind of them, and there may be some other 'sequence' the clue is referring to.

    But that's not a compartment, it's a safe.

    According to the new clue on Facebook, you're assumption is correct.

    Oops. That should be "your" not "you're". That's what I get for changing my wording in the middle of my post.
