    It a very hard pattern... my problem was I only did the first numbers... Send the cookies to your grandma. Shipping a box of cookies to Cal would prob cost like 300 bucks and they would be stale by the time they arrived.

    So would the following numbers in the sequence be 00 and 0?
    8*0=0
    0*4=0
    00
    0*0=0
    0
    My guess though is the pattern ends at 804 since its digit count is not a multiple of two, ha

    Mmmmm! Danish Cookies!!! YUM!!!

    Really though, I probably would have skipped answering in this thread if it weren't for Alex's oops! :-) And even if he isn't a true math genius, they should probably go to him. He did post the pattern. :-P

    Just thought it was funny that you edited "... added the math to prove it"
    From your deduction, I'm guessing the next number in the series should be 804
    1*8 = 8
    2*0 = 0
    1*4 = 4
