In an article on intelligence testing, I came across the following problem: Supply the missing fifth number in the following sequence: 56,35,20,10,__,1. The correct answer is one of the following: 2,3,4,5,6, or 7, but the article does not indicate the answer or the nature of the sequence from which one could derive the answer. I have been unable to answer the problem. Any solution?

This is not pascal's triangle.
The answer is 4
First differences are: 3, 6, 10, 15, 21
Second differences are 3, 4, 5, 6, etc.
Third differences are all 1.

Take the 5 points x=0, x = 1, x = 2, x = 3, x = 4 then the equation is:
y = (x^3)/6 + (x^2) + 11x/6 + 1.

The article is "intelligence: measurement," pp. 475-478 in The Oxford Companion to the Mind, 2ed. 2004.
