Water Bus


This photo was taken back in this year's Lantern Festival, that's why you can see these red lanterns on the water bus, one of our transportation tools.
The lantern festival is one of those most important feasts in China, it is celebrated on the 15th day of the First Month of the Chinese Year, marks the end of the New Year's Holidays.

btw, I have to say your answer is not what I have expected.. how do you come up with 9?
0, 3,(),21, 36=0*1 + 1*3 +( ?)+ 3*7 + 4*9 , so it should be 2*5 , 10 is the right choice.
Never mind, I failed to figure it out in the due time as well^.^

ah now I'm up the spout with my maths
it is all wrong
my logical sequence would work out as
0, 3, 9, 18, 30, 45

time to push the boat out!

Just looking at the equation gives me a headache. :-)

If you hadn't mentioned that it was a water bus, I would have thought it was a train.
