1) Your answer didn`t work because it didn`t account for the number and placement of 1s and 2s.
2) The Fibonacci sequence is not exponential. Neither was the sequence of line lengths in this problem.

what?

only one answer fits it the way I`ve described it (since 5+8 =/= 10), but your way also works.

AND, since it is a recursive equation, you`ll get more than one answer anyway.

also i was using the same pattern of just ones and twos and building a number consisting of ones and twos whose sum and length is exponentially larger than the previous line. which is where i think someone?`s solution doesn`t make sense to me.

i was going by the fact that the numbers in each line add up to the first few numbers in the sequence: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, etc...

it`s called the fibonacci sequence?

It actually adds up to 10. Here`s how it works:

1
11 (there is ONE 1 in the above line; one 1 = 11)
21 (there are TWO 1`s in the above line; two 1 = 21)
1211 (etc)
111221
So the next line is 312211. 3+1+2+2+1+1=10

#3 is the Fibonacci Sequence in sheep`s clothing. Although the reason it`s arranged like that escapes me at the moment, I know that the numbers in the next line must add up to 13.
