I've looked at this.

The problem with a straight number sequence is obviously "29" .

Are you sure of that item ?

Good Morning fresco, I have just checked the numbers and they are wrong, they should read, 260 216 128 108 62 54 ? 27. SORRY!

Appears to be two sequences here.

Taking the even-numbered terms of the sequence, the 4th, 6th and 8th numbers are simply half the value of the previous term.

3rd and 5th numbers are (half the value of the previous term) minus two.

Thus term 7 is (62/2)-2 = 29.

Hope that's right!
